Missing plug?

Postby RanchsA » Sat Apr 02, 2016 10:53 am

Assembling the motor for my A I noticed a threaded hole right next to the cam mount. Should this have a plug of some sort in it? I'm not noticing anything in the parts diagram. Here is the best pic I could get of it through the cam gear.

Can you take a photo of this a little farther away? Just so I can see it relative to other areas of the engine.

I want to say there should be an allen head plug there, but I agree pull back so we can see better......

Its on the front of the motor right behind the cam gear---looks like the oil galley plug and they were usually a 1/4 or 3/8 square drive pipe plug! thanks; sonny

Thanks Sonny. Response beat my pics. Thought they should be plugged just wasn't sure if something special should be use. One on each side motor front and back. Here are pics as well. Thanks for help Mike and Sonny. Sorry my phone is making me crop them quite a bit so they are small enough to upload.

I did a quick google image search of c113 blocks and noticed people had an allen plug in there. That seems to confirm what the others have said

Machine shops take them out so the crud in there can boil out when they hot tank the blocks and they don't always get them put back in! thanks; sonny

Thanks again they are both plugged and we are getting it put back together. Slowly but surely. This is my first rebuild, everything has went smooth so far. Hopefully stays that way. Thanks again everyone much appreciated.
