Greetings All: would like to do a complete flush & refill of coolant on the 84 Vette. Is this something that’s fairly easy to do? Average + mechanic skills but never did a Vette. Don’t even know where radiator drain is located? Also, hard to refill and get all air out of system?
Thanks in advance for your advice & Help.
Willow

THERES THE RADIATOR,THE DRAIN PLUG IS ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT AS SHOWN.YOU COULD TAKE OFF THE HOSE IF YA WANT TO. THEN PUT A GARDEN HOSE IN THE RAD TO FLUSH IT OUT. TO FLUSH THE BLOCK YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE THE THERMOSTAT & USE THE GARDEN HOSE TO FLUSH OUT THE BLOCK.TO FLUSH OUT THE HEATER CORE YOU WILL HAVE TO REMOVE BOTH HOSES,USE THE GARDEN HOSE TO FLUSH THAT OUT.
OR
YOU CAN JUST DRAIN THE RAD ,ADD WATER,RUN IT,DRAIN AGAIN TILL THE WATER RUNS OUT CLEAR AFTER THE THERMO OPENS A FEW TIMES.WHEN YOUR READY TO ADD THE ANTI,DRAIN THE RAD AGAIN,FILL WITH STRAIT ANTIFREEZR,START THE CAR UNTILL THE THERMO OPENS ,THE RAD LEVEL WILL DROP ADD MORE ANTI THEN QUICKLY PUT THE CAP ON. RUN FOR A COUPLE MINUTES THEN SHUT IT OFF,LET IT COOL COMPLETLY REMOVE THE CAP & ADD MORE ANTI.
IF THE OVERFLOW TANK HAS RUST IN IT REMOVE & CLEAN.
