[DML] Re: Mystery Coolant leak found


I am curious why you would install the freeze plugs in backwards from the factory. I 
usaually reserve that method for saucer shaped welch plugs that don't have cupped sides.

What I rely wondered was if it was possible too accidently knock the old plug into the 
water jacket. Is their a step in the hole to prevent this?
