Look in the area of the motor mounts. On the M117, the left drain is just forward of the mount and the right drain is just behind the mount, I imagine M119's are probably similar. Laying on your back look upward and on a flat at the lower edge of the block you should see a 19mm bolt, that should be the drain. On mine, once I pull the plug nothing came out, there was an inner plug of crud and buildup which had to be poked out with a screwdriver.
