OK, MORE THAN ONE, BOTH SIDES OF THE BLOCK

EVEN YOUR HEAD MAY HAVE ONE ON THE BACKSIDE, CLOSEST TO THE FIREWALL

THEY ARE THE STEEL CIRCLE THINGEES THAT ARE PRESSED/ DRIVEN INTO THE CAST IRON OF THE BLOCK.

SHOULD THE WATER IN THE BLOCK EVER FREEZE, THEY ARE "SUPPOSED TO" POP OUT AND KEEP FROM CRACKING THE BLOCK, AS ICE EXPANDS.

SOMETIMES THEY RUST OUT, MOST ARE MADE OF STEEL

SOME PEOPLE REMOVE ONE TO INSTALL A COLD WEATHER "BLOCK HEATER" IN IT'S PLACE.

THEY COME IN DIFFERENT SIZES

YOU SORTA SOUND LOST. WHAT ARE WE UP TO?

MAYBE WE CAN HELP. GIVE US SOME DETAILED INFO, WE'LL TRY!

YOUR TURN

ROGER, STILL SORTA VAGUE HERE, I ROAMED AROUND AND FOUND YOU ALREADY HAD A POST RUNNING.I'M NOT THE SAME GUY YOU SPOKE WITH THERE!

YOU REMOVED THE FREEZE PLUG ON REAR OF THE ENGINE. DID YOU REPLACE IT?

DID YOU INSTALL IT DRY, OR PUT SEALER AROUND THE EDGES?

DID YOU POUND IT IN SQUARELY, USING AN ITEM SUCH AS A SOCKET THAT FIT SORTA SNUGLY INSIDE OF IT?

WHAT IDEAS ARE YOU REFERRING TO?

I AM ASSUMING YOU HAVE A LEAK?

A SMALL MIRROR MAY HELP YOU LOCATE IT.

DID YOU HAVE THE HEAD OFF? MAYBE YOUR HEAD GASKET IS LEAKING BACK THERE.

I'M NOT THE ONE YOU ORIGINALLY CORRESPONDED WITH. YOU CAN STILL GO BACK TO THAT POST AND CONTINUE WITH HIM, IF YOU WANT.
