I am looking to change the radiator fluid on my 4500 and operators manual says "two drain plugs must be opened. One is on L.H. side of crankcase and one on radiator bottom tank.
Anyone know where the plug on LH side of crankcase is located?

We have the 4540, it looks like if you take the grille off the front so you can get to the battery it would be on the bottom front left. Our book shows a plastic screw in plug.

Thanks for the reply.
That is the plug on the bottom of the radiator, I saw that plug.
Cannot find the one one the left hand side of crankcase.
