There's maybe a gallon in the radiator. On my previous radiator, I'd just
loosen the bottom hose and let it leak out. If you're having a shop boil it
out and repair the leak, you might want to consider having a bung soldered
in for a petcock.

So I took the TR6 out of storage yesterday and as I walked past the front of
the car after a short drive I heard an ominous hissing noise. Further
inspection revealed that the seam at the top of the radiator is leaking.
Guess its time to pull the radiator and send it out for repair. There's a
place nearby that supposedly does good work.
I assume the best way to accomplish this is to drain the radiator into a
catch basin of some sort and then simply unbolt it. Only thing I don't know
is the capacity of the radiator. How big of a catch basin am I going to
What's the best way to dispose of all the used anti-freeze?
