Looked at a local parts store and Canadian tire and there seems to be none...

Anyone have a couple in a drawer they'd like to part with?

3/8" Frost/freeze plug? I don't think I'v ever seen one that small. Maybe you could find it under "Galley Plug".

looks like I need 3 MPC-95 Oil Galley plugs

they are a 3/8 expansion plug.

I really only need 2, I'm looking for 3 in case I blow the install :)

I need these to plug a hole in my block where my old oil dipstick was located, which is oddly not threaded), and another which is on my timing plate.

Any help is appreciated, it seems these are usually sold in a kit.

You're probably looking at a $0.50 part. Locally, I could probably get some from the local NAPA store, or from a machine shop. You probably won't find them listed on a web site, because they're too small and too cheap.

Will touch base tomorrow.

You have a few things I need but I promised my wife I wouldn't blow the budget again until after Christmas.

Okay, I've spent $30 in gas looking for them, one place was willing to order me a box of 50 for $20, should have taken them up on it as there seem to be no source for 2-3.

Anyone care to mail 3 to me?

Thanks.

Just got off the phone with the local NAPA
"Sorry chief that's not a size I carry, I can order you a box of 50"

Anyone have 3 of these before I order a box of 50?

They show them as in stock at my local store were I've got them before.
Probably the same box of 50 they brought in 3 years ago.
I'll confirm in the morning.

billybob, if you can put thread in the one in the block...and I've been to napa, car quest, CT and Bensons as well as a local machine shop and I've only come up with boxes.

The box is cheap I could just become the Canadian distributor until I sell out on the 48 remaining.

Mike, How much? ;)

I was really hoping one of the local guys would find one at the bottom of their tool boxes.

Vic, I found some nearby but he's not sure if they're cup or dish type. I'll get some tomorrow and let you know.

would you believe I spent a day driving around in slush looking for 2 of these and it didn't happen?

Every listed machine shop in Ottawa and the closest I got was 7/16

Ordering 50 tomorrow, would have tonight but the parts guy said he couldn't find the listing anymore(since Saturday)

Anyone looking for one PM me and its in the mail.
