An update:

I spent about an hour working on the coolant system tonight. Finally got both of them uncorked (they do indeed turn to the "left" to let the water out). After I drained the block and the radiator, I flushed the radiator with a gallon of water (and a lot of nasty yellow brown crap came out until the last part of the gallon). Then I put the plug back in the radiator, and put enough water in until the block started to flush out -- but it was mostly clear from the start, which I was pleased with, so I put the block plug back in. Then I filled the coolant system back up to full with water, since I will have to drain in soon again to put in some new parts (temp gauge, thermostat, new antifreeze).

So I get on the tractor, pull the starter, and I get a "click". Damn battery was dead. Put the charger on it for about 15 minutes, and got it to spin, but not good enough to catch and start. Checked the valve on the bottom of the carb and it is getting a good flow of gas, so I figure I just need to charge the battery for a few hours and try her again.

Always something, lol. :lol:
