I just flushed out my EL. by taking out the radiator drain plug and removing the thermostat housing and thermostat. This lets you flush out the block as well as the radiator. Probably a good idea to arm yourself with a new thermostat seal before you take it apart just incase yours is ratty. Cheers. p.s make sure its stone cold but hey...

Some radiators have a plug at the bottom, that you can take out,
and then stick a hose down the radiator cap.

Or if it dosnt have a plug, just take the bottom hose of.
