[DML] Re: Mystery Coolant leak found



I have never actually replaced a freeze-out (Welch Plug) in a
Delorean. This is the technique generaly used for these plugs. You're
right, if there is no step in the hole then it is too easy to knock it
right through. Sides or no sides it locks tighter when you can hit it
in the center. Generaly you see the plugs with sides used when there
is no step. You hit it in till it is flush with the edge of the block.
The problem becomes (if there is no step) if you hit it again to
expand it you could knock it in further. When you buy the freeze-out
plugs I am sure the vendor you buy them from can tell you how best to
install them.
