Do you have a wet exhaust or a dry stack?

Greetings,
Don't know about the 135 but on the 120, the drain for the block (this drains the anti-freeze) is on the same side as the intake/exhaust manifold just aft and slightly above the oil dipstick. There's a small valve which you open.

Thank You, i will see that on my Lehmann.
Perhaps i have only a screw and not a valve, let me see.
I will report next week over this.

Greetings,
Have some buckets, rags and a water hose close by. Don't drain the engine when hot and wear safety glasses. If you don't have a valve, this may be a good time to put one on. Um....You're gonna get wet...

I was thinking the Motor-Water hot , but very very hot - the water goes out more quickly
All clear, thank you so much, the next week i will do this operation with the cold machine.

Greetings,
Mr. super. Draining engine oil when it's hot is good. It does drain faster and more "stuff" is in suspension BUT an oil change is usually under very controlled conditions. Changing anti-freeze can be chaotic particularly if you don't have a valve on the block or a fitting of some sort to connect a hose to. The LAST thing you want is scalding hot water/anti-freeze spraying all over the place with YOU in the line of fire!
