[V8] two ways of heat

Thanks for the info regarding bleeding, but what about draining?  I plan 
on pulling the lower rad hose and letting a few quarts of coolant drain 
out.  That should be enough to get the water level below the 
block-to-core hose, right?  I'd hate to have coolant spill out back onto 
all that electronic stuff.

I stumbled across a test procedure at Chris Miller's site.  I'll do a 
visual inspection of each fuse (before I just did a test-light check) 
tomorrow .. as it will be 60 outside (with all this nice weather, I'm 
scared as to what Jan/Feb/March will bring...)
