This is a block drain tap, it will be blocked with sediment in the water jacket.

The item you have indicated is a tap to drain coolant from the block, it must be closed at all times except for draining the coolant, it will be blocked with sediment that has built up in the cooling system, if you unscrew it from the engine and prod the rust you will see coolant flowing. No 23 & 24 are two types of drain taps used.

How the Sediment clean, my radiator be very heat, I have not use coolant, only water - I normally clean the radiator and hoses using water hose - I afraid to use the coolant because if coolant leak to engine, it will be a problem - what shall I do? My ignition coil has set on the Dynamo ( morris 1000 car has Dynamo)it close by engine so I think ignition coil Heat form engine heating?

Remove thermostat bottom hose and back flush till system runs, clean you can mount coil off the engine and away from direct heat, this is not a problem.
