It appeared to be too much work to use the radiator drain valve, as the splash pan has to be removed. I drained it by removing the lower radiator hose which was easy to access. I only was able to drain ten quarts. The other 3/4 's must be in the block. That's a nutty set-up and I bet the engineer who thought that one up is still giggling when he thinks back on that deal.

Your comments appreciated.
