    I could swear I remember there being freeze plugs on the back of a 350 block! But I need someone to verify!!! I've got a friend who has a 96 extended cab chevy and he's blowin straight coolant from the weep hole in the tranny cover! It's coming out from the back of the block, not the top! I could swear the last time I rebuilt the 350 there were freeze plugs back there! Thanks for the help! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And the one behind the cam leaks oil instead of water--I wonder how many rear main seals got replaced and that plug was to blame?. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
