Hello friends, would someone be so kind as to put a picture of the antifreeze drain valve that is located at the back of the block?

Regards, Luis

Block drain plug arrowed, not fitted to all blocks.  Some have a threaded plug instead, some have no drain at all.

Another view. Blanking plug removed. As said not on all blocks. Don’t think A+ had them

Fantastic pictures. That's true, not all the blocks has that drain plug. Thank you very very much guys!

Happy new year to everybody!

I recently looked for the plug on my MPI, but unfortunately it wasn't there...

My 1984 A+ block doesn't have one but a 1982 A+ block I used to have did have the plug.

My Inno 1275 block, basically pre-A+ 1275 casting like the earlier 1275GT, does have the plug. You can see it just to the left of the clutch slave cylinder in the pic below.
