curtiss created the topic: Water Drain Plugs in Block
I am trying to get the water jackets in the block drained out and I see a number of screw in plugs but I am unsure if any will drain the water from the block. I found these two pictures of a block on a internet site. do any of the plugs drain the water jackets in the block?

Thanks,
Curt Curtiss

From your pics and my suspicions.. I'd say the only place water travels thru this block is where you have removed the cover showing the cylinders. Otherwise the lower end appears to just be a cast iron area. Those 3 small screw in plugs pointing doward might be oil ports. In the pics they appear to be inline with the main bearings. Others with much more hands on experience hopefully will chime in quickly to help you out.

Thanks! This is not my block, it is one I found pictures of so I could use it as an example :)Mine is still in the car fully assembled.

The block drain is just to the left of the oil filler tube in pix1.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
