Free -> 10 new radiator plugs. ERR4686 (?)

I excitedly opened the shock absorber bushing package to discover exactly 10 radiator plugs... Whoever wants them can have them for a shipping label.

Well I'm glad some can go to a good home. I wasn't even sure what they were at first. I had to Google "plastic land rover screws." Then I was like, oh, yeah radiator plugs. I remember what those look like.

Guaranteed to fail and cause the engine to overheat and blow the head gaskets - use brass ones instead. Don't ask how I know this...

That's good to know and no one sent me a label for any yet so I guess they'll go in the recycling bin.

Very good to know. Your heart was in the right place. But if they are $h!t, shouldn't they go in the green waste bin? ;-)

I carry one as a spare in my toolbox to give away to anyone who needs it. We had one fail on a D-90 during a trail ride at Amicalola - after we took about an hour to dig the remains of the old one out of the radiator we needed one to temporarily block the hole until he could get his hands on a brass one so they aren't completely useless - just don't use one long term.

That's funny - I never read the label on the bag until the other poster mentioned it. (Well, funny for me since I did not make the order and was not expecting shock bushings.)

Jack - It sounds like you have had a lot of experience with these plugs. What do you use for a washer for them? My Stage One has the brass plug. My original hard rubber gasket gave up the ghost a year or so back. I ordered a new one from RN and it was this super soft o-ring that squeezed out from under the plug at hand tight. I replaced with a garden hose washer and have had a little better luck - but it really needs to have something that is a little harder rubber.

I'm sure McMaster-Carr has a suitable washer somewhere. McMaster-Carr
The GOOD brass plugs have a groove machined in the mating surface for an O-ring.
And no I don't remember where I got them - George maybe or from England.
