It's cool seeing your progress! Keep posting!

About your squealing, my guess is it was related to the fuel dumped into the engine bay. It might have got thrown on your belts and caused them to squeal.

As for the balancer, unless it was damaged due to the misfire (unlikely unless it was at a point of failure already, or unless you ran it a really long time with a misfire) it's unlikely it will be damaged.

That picture of the exhaust system seems interesting. It could be modified, but the weld doesn't look super terrible.

I was curious so I found a couple answers on some different websites.

So, either Isuzu was trying to push more power and it was cheaper to add a secondary cat, or some previous owner might have had trouble getting it to pass emissions and just decided a junk-yard cat would help.

I'm curious to see what you find, as it seems the trend to add an additional cat is relatively new.

Is there a different way I can flush and not pump through my new radiator?
Well you could just drain it and then disconnect your radiator. Then run a hose through the inlet with the thermostat removed.

Be prepared to get a lot of water splashed back in your face though. (- this is a truly ******* way of flushing it out, so don't judge me to harshly :lol: )
