I'm changing the coolant on my 426 but i can't seem to find a drain plug for the Rads. My service manual still hasn't come in yet. There has to be something i overlooked?

Look at the waterpump and you'll see a bolt on it with a copper washer. That's the coolant drain.

Or you can just take a hose off.

Make sure the engine isnt warm and that the coolant isnt pressurized....i know it seems stupid but i have seen people do that....the last thing you want is coolant in your eyes....
