Noob here......I want to flush coolant system but can't locate drain plugs. I have the FSM but the pic looks totally different than mine....I have a smaller radiator in front and to the right side of the larger main. Section CO5 of FSM does not show this and the plug looks obvious in pic but not on my rig. Also having trouble locating engine drain plug. Any one have pics? Thanks

No pics of a 3FE block drain but it should be on the left side of the engine below the intake manifold. It is probably covered in grime so use a bright light to look for it from the left front wheel well. The largest "radiator" is the one for the engine; there is a white plastic petcock at the bottom rear left side of the radiator IIRC. So if you're standing in front of the bumper looking at the engine, the petcock will be on your right at the rear bottom of the radiator. You may not be able to see it from above, look from underneath the vehicle.
Got it! Once I removed the skid plate I could see it. Thanks again!!
