No, my drain valves in my '72 are easy to access and work well manually.

The main reason for my reply was to welcome you to the forums. As you may have already seen, there is a ton of info here. Welcome aboard!

I would be hesitant to install an electric drain valve. I have had times where something gets stuck at the valve trying to leave the tank. I can feel it when I try to close the valve. If I had an electric one I may not know it and break the valve when I try to close it.
