Does anyone have a fix for an over sized hole for a freeze plug?

what size is the hole and what size freeze plug are you trying to use that won,t seal correctly?
is the block walls in the freeze plug hole in the block distorted, damaged or rusted badly?

yes rubber expansion freeze plugs can be an option

rubber expansion freeze plugs come in a wide selection of various diameters

yes and advance auto and other vendors

measure the hole your trying to plug accurately


clean the block carefully before you install the plug
coat the block and freeze plug contact surfaces with sealant just prior to install
