This evening I found small leak (just a few drips) from the hose appears to go to the turbo. The hose is old has a small hole and needs to be replaced. Does anybody know the diameter and length? It looks like maybe 2" or so. I would assume its something I could easily find at locally. Also, does the radiator have a drain plug?

Maybe the offending hose is an oil return line.
The new hose must be able to withstand the turbo heat..

Two metal tubes are called out on the turbo page, these are for coolant , are complete with banjo fittings..

The cooling system has two drains , one at the radiator base, hard to access, the other is the removed lower radiator hose , quick and easy, a little sloppy - this is the one most mechanics use..:cheesy:

Why does this stuff occur when it is so cold out...:roll:

A hose thats about 2" in DIAMETER sounds like the pressurized intake hose for AIR. If you found coolant near it, it is probably coming from somewhere else.
