I haven't read Greg's posting in the Diesel section but, I didn't have a problem with opening the block drain. It is located on the passenger side of the block. I don't remember what size it is. Removing this plug allows for all the coolant to be drained. With this plug removed and the radiator plug closed, I ran some clear water through the expansion tank and watched the water coming out of the block drain. Once it ran clear, I put the drain plug back.
