Draining the radiator

Can someone tell me the best way to drain the radiator?
I'm adding the Temp sensor for my Vapor.
Is there a drain bolt or do I take off the lower hose?
A picture would be great.
My manual is one the way, but doesn’t do me any good in the mail.

Thank’s
Alex

Without looking, I would guess there might be a drain on the bottom of the water pump. I'll check it out in the morning.

The simplest way is to just pull the lower hose and drain it all in a bucket to reuse.

You can cut the hose without fluid running out. I installed mine and only got a little on the ground. I used a pair of the PVC cutters that look like pliers and it cut real easy.

Alex, I went right to the battery to make sure I got a good ground and a full 12 volts.

Good question!
I wraped it around the spark plug wire about 6 times.
I haven't set it up yet.
I would like to know the value also.
