Block drain plug for bulkhead side of block is out in open, has a 14mm hex head on it.. note they is usually pretty tight in the block from never being used as a source for drianing more coolant.. most will come out, use an impact swivel socket, and lonlg extension, and a 1/2 drive breaker bar..
Plug on radiator side is behind starter, right besdie the crank position sensor, not a lot of room to work that plug if it is stuck in the block. L dont mess with it.. we dont get a lot for coolant change.
Before install of drain plug, use some PERMATEX pipe thread sealer in squeeze bottle,, looks like toothpaste... I have tube of the 592 as it it called out for use on a bunch of fastenetrs on my YAMAHA PWC.. Put the plug in the block and snug it up,, dont go majorly torqueing it, it'll be major PIA to remove next time around (it is a tapered pipe plug).
