There should be a plug on the side of the coolant pump. Or better yet on the inlet housing attached to the pump. Usually somewhere in that area is where I do it on the newer models.

Older ones have a block plug behind the injection pump. At least the smaller ones.

steve,
my jd 265 hp 6068 has a petcock drain in front of the starter in the block on the port side of the motor.
