Hi, I need to change a leaking core plug on the main engine block. It is in parallel with three others. Does anyone know what size I need, and where I can get them from?

I've been told that they need to made of brass, but the only ones I can find that are made of brass, are produced in the USA, but I am not prepared to fork out that much money.

Can I put any other type of metal in its place instead?

Any reply will be greatfully recieved.

Pete.

Recently had to change core plugs on my Fessie too. Well, I got someone else to do them. They were well rusted, and one of them was leaking, which was playing hell with my coolant!
I'm not sure of the size [url="http://www.coreplugs.co.uk"]ford core plugs[/url] you require. If you're after a specific size, I can only suggest contacting the main head office for Ford.

@OP did you do a google search?

Try the shopping option "Capri Core Plugs". You get lots of choice.
