Engine Block Drain Cover

This cover is the replacement for the factory block drain/engine block heater housing. Being the lowest part of the cooling system it is often filled with sediment and over the years corrodes from the inside out. Often overlooked until it is too late, the drains should be opened when doing a coolant service to properly empty the coolant that is retained in the block. Because the block heater is not commonly used, a simpler, easier to service, plate has been designed to replace the original cast housing.

The cover is made from 6061 aluminum and includes all stainless steel hardware and o-ring seal. This seal makes it possible remove and replace the plate for drainage without needing to replace a gasket every time and gives easier access to the mounting bolts.
