My engine is in and I just installed the starter, I found the hole in the block.

WHat is it....


Should I just go to the auto parts store and find a plug/screw or does this hole serve a purpose...

The hole pictured is a blind hole, don't worry about it. There are two more holes that you need to plug, one on the right side just in front of the motor mount, and the other on the left, (drivers side) towards the rear of the block, just about in the same location of your pic, but on the other side. If this is a new block, look at the top rear for a 3/4" soft plug. Some times they are missing, and if it's not inplace, you won't have any oil pressure. There are also three plugs on the back face of the block, behind the flywheel, make sure they are there, as they seal the oil galleys. HTH, John
