Take a line loose on the rad...You might want to plumb in a T-Line or A Brass Fil-Port for a drain on you new rig, makes it a little easier...

Yeah if thats your lowest line just put a T-Line or a Fil-Port for a drain I'll link you need a T to install the Fil-Port to....It doesn't matter which line on your rad to take off, you might have to tilt your case around some to get all the water out....Danger Den :: Tubing & Fittings :: Tubing and Clamps :: Brass Fillport
