Hi i am dan. I can help you with this. That should be fine are you draining the whole system or just the loop for that radiator? The most important thing will bee to blead the air out of the system when the radiator is put back. If they are just cast iron radiators it is just a matter of using the bleader at the top of the radiator. Also if the bleaders are old this is the perfect time to feplace them and they really don't cost much. Let me know if you have any more questions and if you could also rate me on my service by selecting one of the five stars I would appreciate it. Thank you for using just answer.
Ok, in order to do that you will need to have a isolation valve on the supply and return pipe for that radiator do you have valves to isolate just that radiator? If not you will have to drain the whole system.
That should be ok. If the valves hold and don't leak by you shouldn't need to cap them but better safe than sorry
