On my 4.108 there are two drain taps. One is on the Starboard side under the alternator. The other is on the Port side at the flywheel end of the block. I think the 4.107 is similar (unless anyone knows different). The Club holds copies of the workshop manuals for these engines which are available free to members. I would recommend you get hold of one.
If your engine is raw water cooled one way to prepare for winter is to close the raw water seacock, remove the weed filter basket and pour antifreeze mixture into the filter housing with the engine running until it can be seen coming out of the exhaust. This will also lubricate the impeller and protect against the pump freezing.
I hope this is helpful.
Best regards.
