Hi everyone,

I really need to know what type of plug this is, circled in red in the image (thanks GialloEvo94 for the pic wink.gif )

Mine have been covered in silicon sealer and upon removal it seems as though there are one or two pins holes, so they need replacing.

Thanks!

These plugs are on the flywheel side of the engine, the balances shafts aren't in use but they are still fitted.

Someone on the forum got hold of these core plugs for the balancer shafts. I'll see if I can find the post.

This post might be useful. The guy used something called welshplug.

Awesome, thanks Ganz! Yes, they call them welsh plugs here also but core plugs is also right because they are there to remove the "core" of the casting when the blocks are cast or at least at the end of the process.

I found some 2" plugs that work great! I'm wondering though if it's possibly to remove the balance shafts and just plug up the two front hole as well?
