Coolant Drain Plug

Was going to change the coolant on my 90 Ford LTD (5.0 EFI engine). Looked in the shop manual which has an exploded view of the engine, showing every nut and bolt, but it does not show any coolant drain plug. In the "Cooling System" section of the manual it refers to coolant drain plug(s).
Does anybody know where it is located?

Your radiator should have a drain plug on bottom of rad, or fan side of bottom of radiator, and some have it on the side of the bottom tank of the rad also. If your looking for a drain for the block, usually up under exhaust manifold , 1/2 or 9/16 hex head or metric if your talking Canadian made. If all else fails you could always drain rad by pulling bottom hose off, when cool.
