    Freeze Plugs ?

    SO Brass or Steel Freeze Plug?
    is one better than the other?

    For what? The cam plug? If so, steel is fine. Because they are not exposed to water, no need for brass. Besides, I don't think you can get a brass Welch plug. Only steel.

    Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

        For a water cooled engine? Or an air cooled Kohler? I need to know what you are asking about. For say, a 350 Chevy, yes they offer both brass and steel. But that is a freeze plug. A Welch plug, like a Kohler uses in front of the governor gear, those are only made in steel. If you are putting a freeze plug in a water cooled engine, yes.... brass is better.

            Those are freeze plugs, and they aren't right. It uses a Welch plug. The number you used probably subbed over to a freeze plug, which is common. You'll have to find the size and do it that way. Don't order those, they won't fit.

            You need a 1 1/8" welch plug. They look like this:

              Any decent auto parts store should have, or can shortly get some welch plugs. I bought some for the last Kohler I did from O'Reilly's. Knowing me, I bought a box of them.
