Old Freeze Plug Inside Block
So, was turning the block over on the stand to start on the lifters and heads. Heard a little jingle inside the block, and thought it was just the oil pump rod shifting. Was cleaning out the threads on the block and my rifle brush hit something inside that jingled. Come to find out there is a freeze plug in there. I would just pop out the outside plug and use a magnet to pull out, but being on the stand, very limited room back there, and most likely would have to put it on my crane to pull which would be a PITA.
Any issues with leaving the freeze plug in there? No telling how long its been in there. Worst of it is that I had this block cleaned and had new freeze plugs installed a while back. Maybe the machine shop did it..but too much of a hassle to haul it over there.
