Default Radiator Draining

I wanted to drain the radiator without flowing across the engine pan, so I used a flexible drain funnel and a piece of 2" PVC pipe leading to a drain pan on the floor. The funnel is formed to keep the coolant from overflowing.

You could also just connect a piece of tubing to the drain. It would slip over and be held snug over the boss on the end of the valve.

I considered using tubing, but the pan seemed to close to get a good grip on the tubing to push it on. But, it works for you, so I'll try it again; 50% fewer pieces!
