The only other thing I could add (which is not likely in your situation
Re: 6.5 diesel coolant loss
since you don't mention any other problems beyond coolant loss) would be the
head gasket between the rear cylinders. On early 6.5's that have been used
for heavy hauling or towing (1993-1997 I think) there was burn through
between the rear cylinders caused by excessive heat under load. This
problem was fixed in '98+ with the use of a higher capacity water pump with
dual thermostats and a crossover. If this is where your coolant is going
then it's not an easy fix, but if you do have this issue and your truck is
pre-97 then I strongly suggest installing the later style water pump and
plumbing I mentioned above.
