What is the size of 351 windsor block freeze plug above starter. I know that is a its a npt pipethread?
If it is a freeze plug it would not have threads. Freeze Plugs
are designed to pop out of the block should the water in the block
freeze. This could not happen if the plug was threaded. Hope This
Where is the engine number on 351 Windsor engine block?
Asked in Chevy 350
Can a rear freeze plug above the starter be replaced on a 350 383 with the block in vehicle 57 Chevy?
If you can get to it, yes. But understand that there is probably rust and corrosion elsewhere in the engine and you probably have a few corroded freeze plugs that haven't given out yet. You may need to pull the starter and exhaust manifold to get to the freeze plug, and replacement plugs are available. Once they start to go it probably won't be stopping any time soon. A good anti-freeze with a rust inhibitor is certainly worth the investment if for no other reason than it prevents freeze plug failure.

Where is the crank sensor on a 2001 Oldsmobile intrigue?
I need to change the freeze plug just above the starter can you give you any helpful information?
Removing the starter and exhaust manifold provides much needed access. Getting the old freeze plug out can be difficult. Sometimes you can beat one side of it with a big screwdriver or something and rotate the plug enough to get a pair of channel locks or vise-grips on it and remove it. Put a little shellac compound or similar sealant on the new freeze plug and beat it into the hole with the biggest socket that will fit into the plug. Sometimes a short extension will help.
