I flushed the radiator, but it only drained about 4qt. I believe it takes nearly ten, and do not know what to do from here. Any ideas?

All the rest is in the car. At the garage when we do this, we have a machine that connect to the thermostat and one hose on the outlet to the radiator. Basicaly, the new fluid push on the old so in about 20 minutes you have a system full of new prestone.

The auto part stores sell a plastic T you can put into the heater hose line to flush it out with a garden hose, they're only around 5 bucks or so. Figured this might help you out.
