      i will be there at 8. maybe sooner.

      ryan,
      the big ring reminds me of the oil cooler o ring. there is one on each side of it I think.

      I cant remember the rest.
      as for freeze plugs, John knows what to use in there. He had to do his a couple years ago. I will ask him if he doesnt reply in here.

      Have to stop somewhere along the way to grab something for dinner.

      Ah, valve stem seals, ok. M&J rebuilt my head, so they put new ones in already.

      Putting the rest of the engine together today, and might get it back in the car if all goes smoothly. Waiting for the oil pressure gauge I ordered, so I won't get everything running, but I should be close. Hopefully make it out to a Friday soon!

      Got close today.

      Need to know if these holes need freeze plugs though:

      Those are for engine oil. Tap them and run in a threaded plug.

      Johns blew out on his first start up.
      Threaded would be nice.

      Not only once did they blow, it happened twice and on the flywheel side resulting in engine removal each time. The front plugs will have to be "custom" fit with a Dremel or grinder in order that the water pump sits flush and seals in the block.

      Well, the REALLY crappy part is that the flywheel is already on, making tapping impossible. Hell, getting a normal plug in there is going to be hard enough.

      I tried with four plugs today, 5/8", but decided to pull them out and put sealant on them. They are really tight fits, not worried about blowing them out. I'm hitting them harder than 100+ psi is going to. Going to buy four more Wed and put everything together and start the damn thing. I'm pessimistic enough that I won't even hook up the axles.

      If they blow out, then it will give me a reason to do engine mounts.

      ////

      So that was my original post...and then I got online, bought new motor mounts, flywheel bolts, and a catch can so I can remove the damn flywheel and tap those holes.

      Ok, what do I need to pick up to tap the holes now???

      You will need a 3/8" NPT pipe tap and 4 3/8" plugs. I used allen socket plugs as they do not have a head that sticks out that would interfere with the flywheel.

      For a 3/8 - 18 NPT Tap you need to use a 9/16 (0.562 in) Drill Bit. Which is ~14.27 mm

      Are you sure that the hole is at 5/8? 5/8 = 0.625 in = 15.875 mm

      Maybe John used 1/2" NPT which uses a 45/64 (0.703 in) drill bit.

      So, did some reading instead of just asking and of course it is a 3/8" tap for the hole.

      I picked up the plugs today. I can swing by anyone's house on the way home from work today, 6pm, if you'll let me use your tap! I'll bring a six-pack.

      3/8" NPT tap tapers from 14.5mm to 17.08mm at the top. The 3/8" plug is a consistent 17.2mm. Do not enlarge the holes in the gallery, just use some engine oil and go slow with the tap.

      It runs! Put 10 miles on it today.

      Crack pipe is leaking at the water pump side, and I think I have a boost leak somewhere, but it is purring like a kitten.

      Exhaust work Tuesday (taking out the cat), but I'm away for the next two Fridays!

      Thanks for all the help guys.

      The car is running great! Just need to get my muffler fixed up and a few extra parts from the scrap yard, but no fluids leaking which is good.

      I took everyone's advice and plugged those holes correctly (so to speak). They will never leak again.
