    are there freeze plugs at the rear of the block in the bell housing area?

    if so, are they the same as the plugs on the side of the block?

    the ones on the side of the block are leaking, and i'm sure the ones at the back would be leaking as well.

    Thanks in advance, Tom

    Here's a pic I pulled off another forum I belong to. I think the top plug is a freeze plug, the bottom is the cam bore. Anyone agree/disagree?

    im pretty sure the top is the freeze and the bottom is for the cam. i have one of these motors from a 36 dodge pickup too....if anyone wants it, i'll sell it for free-fifty-free.

    good info :D

    when i poured water into the flatty, i had water running out the plugs in the side of the block, and seemed like a small amount coming from the seam between the block, and trans on the driver's side - i figured there was a plug that is right at the edge of the trans mounting surface of the block....

    really sux because i just bought a new carb, and got it running on it's own...put it in gear and moved it back and forth in the yard.

    gotta get it to hold water to be able to run it down the street.

    Yes Bugman is correct, The one at 12 o'clock is a freeze plug and the one at 2 o'clock is for the cam. Unfortunately there is no easy way to get to it with the engine in the car.
