Replacing my freeze plugs this afternoon and pulled the old three plugs out. All are steel when I clean them up on the bench grinder. Just wondering if these are 90 years old or replaced sometime during the past 9 decades.
They are steel. What were the originals?
My newly installed ones are made by the U.S. mint.
Pics Robert? Of new ones installed.
See separate thread on my T is now worth 3 plug nickles.
Having some issues with photo uploading this evening, but here's one of the tribe in place.
And all buttoned up with manifolds in place.
Originals were steel.
Don't think I'd bother with steel orig or not. I'd use brass or the far more fun nickel job.
Of the three choices, the nickels are best. They will far outlast steel and are cheaper than brass with shipping. And, of course, there's the cool factor.
