    Just finished having the aftercoolers cleaned and tested. was debating taking off the heat EX vs roding them out. The starboard one looks hard to reach the hoses. Also what would be the best process to drain the antifreeze the hose at the filter?

    I use the filter hose to drain the starboard engine like you said, and the petcock on the engine oil cooler to drain the port engine.
