Default Winterizing MCCK

I have a 4mcck 1a/1a. I need to winterize it and I see that it has a brass plug on each head. I know those are drain plugs, but is there anything else I need to drain as well?

Drain oil, refill and run engine 4 minutes, and turn off fuel supply. Let engine run out of fuel, even choke if possible, to make sure carb is totally MT. Your other alternative is to run engine once a week for 10 minutes, to keep fresh gas in carb, all engine seals lubricated and supple, and dry out the ignition system. (This is better than storing the engine, which in cold climates, will attract moisture thru everything.)

So there are no other drain plugs that I need to worry about to get water out of it?
