Freeze plug on steering housing

Hello,

I just wanted to double check on the steering housing freeze plug. Is it driven in "backwards" (flange in first)?

Thanks,

Kyle

Convex side (high side of dome) out.

Hello,

The one they gave me a NAPA appears to be the wrong type. It's a 2-1/4" plug, but is the cup type and the flange is probably .03 larger than the hole and it doesn't want to even start in. I believe there is another type of plug, either the concave type with no flange or another type that has the base larger than the flange. Does anyone know the correct part number for the plug?

Thanks,

Kyle

Hello,

I think I found the answer. TM Tractor has the concave plug and it's the one with no flange.
