After 2 months of wanting to torque the head on my 1201, (seemed like everyday another project has come up) I tore it down today to torque the head. I discovered the freeze plug at the right front of the engine was leaking. I have ordered new parts and should have them in a week. Its always something. The plugs were replaced over 5 years ago when the engine was rebuilt.

I know folks have had good results using brass welch plugs. Perhaps those I used were poorly made or inappropriate alloy but I've had decidedly poor results with brass and have gone back to steel.

Back on the road. Went with a stainless plug.

Nice work as always, Andy.
Maybe it's just the lighting, shouldn't the manifold nuts be brass?
