Radiator drain plug

Postby havoc1482 » Fri Jan 31, 2014 5:32 pm

So, I'm doing some work on the SA engine and I want to get the radiator out of the way. Obviously I have to drain it before I can pull it or else I'll have a big green mess. My problem... for the life of my I cannot find my drain plug! Anybody know where it is and have a picture? This is such a trivial and silly problem, but annoying nontheless.

I am away from my photos, but it is on the left side at the bottom of the grill area, just above the front axle. It is a bit recessed, so it's easy to miss! It's also a bit of a pain to get a tool on it!! Hope this helps and good luck!!

ps It is part of the water outlet neck, not the radiator.

FOUND IT, AND OH BOY WAS IT AN EXPERIENCE! I forgot that coolant has the consistency of water so when I pulled the cap off my Super A was all like "LOL IM GONNA ------ ALL OVER THE WORKSHOP!"
