Hello. Doing some work on my 47 3100 with the original 216 engine and noticed one of the freeze plugs is leaking. It's just below the water pump and looks to be about 2 inches. Can someone tell me the exact size and where I can get one without having to by a set? Thanks.

You can buy as many or as few as you want at any auto parts store. As for size someone will be along shortly.šŸ›

Hello guys. Can someone help me out on this please? I took the plug out today. I never saw one like it. It's flat like a 2 inch washer with no hole in it probably 1\8 inch thick. Went to the local Napa but they did not have one and could not get one. Can someone give me a source to order one?

Not sure about now but back when I delivered commercial parts for Advance Auto they had a "bin" with freeze plugs of different sizes and some different shapes. Give them a try......if no luck, look for the oldest longest running parts store in your area. You may have to try one somewhere around Laurens, Easely or even Spartanburg.....like the old Spartan Automotive place which is now a carquest but they use to do machine work/rebuilds.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Wow! we have found the original "Johnny on the spot" Awesome.

I have a favor to ask so that I don't go crazy. I am retired and come from the mechanical design world. Please don't refer to something round as being 2" wide. It is 2" in diameter. smile
