Oil Gallery plug


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

First post here and its a rather embarrassing one!

I stripped my engine down about 4 years ago due to a head gasket failure and Nikasil coating failure. Due to various unforeseen circumstances and a house move I am finally back to assembling the engine. I have what I believe to be an oil gallery plug/set screw that I can't for the life of me work out where it goes, I'm sure its staring me in the face? There are two in the cylinder head but the third one has me stumped.

Would much appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.



1988 Esprit turbo

I was able to get it installed, being on the engine stand still sure made it easier. I've always had good luck with common or garden blue loctite so that's what I used.
