1. I did not think you had to remove the radiator to flush the system...
2. Flush the system the normal way and be done with it..
3. I don't think you have to flush through the water pump, but if you did I would definetly do that with the engine turned off as the radiator is removed...

put it all back together and run it with distilled water, Watch the temp gauge go up. Then when it starts to go down the thermostat has opened and you have sent the clean water through everything. Drain, and repeat as many times as you feel neccesary or til the water is clear.
