On the 300E I am instructed to "drain the coolant at crankcase". I thought only oil is in the crankcase. Any idea where they want me to drain the coolant?

103 motors have an engine block coolant drain plug on the passenger side of the motor. It's below the exhaust manifold, between the #5 and #6 cyl. A 19mm socket should get it loose.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.
