    Tom, the best easy fix is to buy the copper Dorman plugs that go in easily and then you use a wrench to tighten the dome nut that's on them. Not talking the rubber expansion kind - these are all metal. I really like them. Fairborn Studebaker and probably other vendors carry them and you could quite possibly order them from a local auto parts place as well.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Ah, you just have to love that wonderful rumble of a Stude V8. Unlike any other!!! [8D]

        BTW, this video looks like it would be a great way to sell a car on ebay.

            Well, we lucked out. Although there was a little water when I dropped the oil yesterday, I think we're in good shape - at least based on the way it is running and the look of the new oil. New freeze plugs and we're ready to tear up the road again.

                Tom,

                Forgive me, but I'm trying to figure how any coolant could have gotten in the oil due to leaking freeze plugs.[B)]

                        Overheating an engine often blows out the head gaskets. If there is water in the oil I would at least pull the heads to replace the gaskets, and check the combustion chambers for cracks.

                            Yeah Tom... if you found "only a little bit of water", you'd better keep a close eye on that thing. If you've got coolant leaking into the oil, the oil should start to show a creamy brown hue to it.
