I just purchased the LNF silicone combo hose kit from DDM. I replaced the throttle body and intake tube OK. Now comes the hard part, replacing the upper radiator hose. I would like to drain some coolant out before I remove the old hose but can't figure out how to do this, short of removing a hose and spilling coolant all over the place. Does anyone know how to drain down the cooling system? I watched Dave's youtube video on refilling the system and bleeding out the air, but no clues on how to drain the coolant.

Thanks, Don from Nanaimo

Just be sure that when you fill it, you use the vacuum filler. Or air lock will occur.

i did look for a drain cock on the bottom of the radiator but could not see one which, for me, is not unusual. If I can't find an item around the house I will of course yell for help from my wife. Invariably, said item is right in front of me. I think it must be magic, one second it is not there and then presto chango, I take a second look and there it is. Like I said, magic.

It's hidden. Feel inside the radiator support. The coolant will come out the hole in the support directly below the access hole for the petcock valve.
