hi,

does anyone know where it's situated on the RB20DET block. reading threads on site, its mentioned for the rb25 and rb26, but couldnt find anything on the rb20.

is it this by any chance? located beneath the exhaust manifold, and beneath anoher line which leads to the turbo?:

That's what I would refer to as the coolant drain

it's one of the coolant lines for the turbo

probably the lowest point

apart from the bottom of the radiator, if you want to flush it all out open the plug at the bottom of the radiator and start the engine and make sure the heater is on full ball. when coolant stops coming out it means there is nothing left in the system

whats the bolt for at the bottom of that line? the top is the into the turbo, then there is a 14 bolt under it, is that the coolant drain?

i personally wouldn't go undoing it everytime you want to drain out the coolant in your engine as it is a banjo bolt so it has copper washers that *going by the book* shouldn't be used again once you take them off

also it's a hardline so once you take it off it will no doubt move a bit and then be a total cunt to get back on
