45 + years working with Pontiac engines. Was pretty sure I had seen everything. Wrong again! I love it. Went to considerable effort and ruined two perfectly good quarters to perform that repair.

I think this will work a little better. Or at least it looks better.

It will certainly work better ... but I think it lacks character

The one on the RH side (left when viewed from the front) was 1991.

Well .... all I have is the standard pressed in plugs .... so the quarters might be an improvement over that.

I have had the standard pressed plugs for years. But what I did was take a square edged file and make some little cuts in the plug and take the handle of the file and make a few deep scratches in the block where the plug fits. I did this so the JB Weld would have more to "grab" that i smeared on the plug. Like where you sand something when you epoxy it.
Then I staked it on the inside lip with a punch then filled the rest with JB.
Its not coming out.
You can still tap it for pipe threads at a later dare if you chose.

Maybe he used them to buy 2 screw-in plugs.

That must be the safety mod for the 60 psi pump as I hear the the 80 psi pump needs two of the thicker silver Dallor coins to be used there!
