Not a problem to get out. Heat the hex sholders with a good-hot-flame from a cutting torch for about 10 seconds. Let it cool for an hour or so, then use the proper size Allen wrench ( I think it's a one inch) and it should screw right out. If it does not come out heat it again and let it cool and try again. The plugs are available from your CNH dealer.

With a block in that nasty condition I would be more concerned about a hole in a cylinder wall. Has the anti-freeze ever been changed?

Tell me about it! After most of a can of PB Blaster over the course of several weeks and grinding a bolt head to fit so I could use a breaker bar on it, I never did get those out of Luke's 4000's block. Ended up letting the machine shop worry about them. That block was as full of rust and crud as any I've ever seen.

A good place to find large hex bits are allthread connecting nuts they are extra long an allow the use of a standard scocket.

I found out the hard way that pipe plugs are tappered and the further in you run the tap the hole gets bigger . This plug does look like it is in farther than it should be , maybe not . It may have been cut too deep already and could not be tightened up enough causing it to leak around the threads ? Fortunately we have good sealers / epoxies these days so I bet there is something on the market to lock and seal it if there is a problem . If it was installed loose it may come out without much of a fight . I could see getting the right size bolt head to fit the hex and drilling a hole in the middle of a 36" piece of steel then welding the bolt to make a nice T handle Allen wrench .

As you suggested in your earlier post, yes that is a screw in plug into the water jacket. They were used in the casting process. Later blocks had steel press in type which rusted through fairly often.
I have never seen a screw in type fail before but then I've never seen the back end of the block quite so yucky either.
If I were faced with that problem I would probably go after it with a die grinder and try to remove as much of the plug as i could without damaging the threads in the block. Then I would find,buy,borrow the correct size pipe tap and tap out the rest of the old threads. Then replace the plug.

4000 3 cylinder ?
This MAY be it .

Plug, Pipe, Threaded, 1-1/2" - 11 x 1/2", Years: 01-JAN-65-28-FEB-69

Product No: 378862S (Messick's $54)

Recommended Qty 1

If it is the 1-1/2" plug it may be the same as the FE Ford 427's used in the screw in freeze plugs blocks . They are almost impossible to get out once they have rusted . I think you can find them with a 4 sided square opening used in plumbing . The hex opening ones are expensive .
