Looks like these are going to be $4 to ship in the lower 48 -- same price for 1 or 2.

Do these fit the holes left when removing the oil cooler lines?

Nope, they fit the top of the radiator and the top of the water pump housing -- where the black plastic ones live. For clarification, they do not have the enormous slot on top for a leatherman, they require a socket to install/remove. They include an oring.

Well, it turns out I'll need some more. I have a (very) few left but will get some more in. I'll see if I can't get the price down a bit as well.

Jim you know I'll take care of you, pm me with a quantity. You should have the oil cooler now as well, yes?

Not to keep hijacking, but anyone know where to get plugs or caps that would close off the openings left by removing the oil cooler lines?

Thanks

What are you trying to do? You can remove the sandwich adapter from the oil pump to get rid of the oil cooler lines.

Hey Pendy,

I've already removed the oil cooler lines and the sandwich plate. Just screwed the filter back on. Everything is working as it should, and haven't noticed any difference in temperature or performance. I just need to plug the open holes in the radiator so it doesn't fill with dirt or debris. I was just curious what plugs I should use.

You guys do know these are 1/2" BSP plugs used on millions of household radiators worldwide. They really should only be a few dollars.

Look up ERR4686B which is the Britpart number. ERR4685 is the O-ring.

Wish you'd posted that a very long time ago . . .

If anybody that has paid for them wants to return them, I'll happily refund the purchase and return shipping.

Follow-up Post:

Actually, check that. Just to avoid the appearance of impropriety, I'm going to refund everyone's money and have you keep the plugs.

Tony

I just usually put plastic caps over them. Left over from new lines. You may even have som around.

Maybe in the UK, but nothing in the home depot here matched up.

Sure, just buy them out of the UK. The pound is worthless ATM, shipping is cheap. Not sure why the local Rover parts places don't carry them. Personally, I buy everything out of the UK. Cheaper and faster than the USA....
