Draining engine block

How do I go about draining coolent from the engine block? I know there are 2 drain plugs but out of my 2 books combined I have a tiny little picture barely big enough to show the plug. Can someone try and tell me or show me where it is?

Also my engine is a 289.

Thanks in advanced!

Hey Brandon, got you covered. Since my shiny new engine is still on a stand I took some pictures for you. Check your email. Mine is a 302 but it's the same.

Re:Draining engine block

You might consider replacing the plugs with brass petcocks. You can pick'em up at Lowes or Home Depot. It makes it really quick work to get in there with a wrench to crank them open or closed. Most of the roundy round race motors I've seen hav'em instead of the standard plug. You never know when you'll need to drain the block at the track. ;) In fact I helped a guy pull the balancer and water pump off his craftsmen truck yesterday. Those petcocks made draining WAY easier.
