Using an integral valve, either side can be closed and cleaned without affecting coolant flow to the engine through the other side.

Lugs for the Cast Bronze Covers Permit Easy Removal and Cleaning of the Strainer Baskets. Drain Plugs in the Bottom Castings are Provided for Easily Removing Sediment and Draining for Winterizing.
