If your frost plugs are steel, it is a very good idea (as Hans suggested) to change them to brass while the engine is out. A $15 investment that ensures no problems for many years to come. With steel plugs you never know how much they have corroded until they leak. Then it's a difficult job to change them in the car.



So should i only change the 7-8 plugs on the side of the block or do i change the one at the rear of the motor as well. cheers

all of them,unless you want to pull the motor out again to do the rear one you didnt change the first time********you get a plus-paint the rear as well,hows the crank oil seals,front and rear?

There are 3 on each side of the block and one on each end of each cylinder head. Total of 10. The large one at the back of the block above the crankshaft seals the camshaft tunnel and doesn't need to be changed as it seals oil not water.
