Got some Dorman freeze plugs at the local auto parts and removed the old ones, cleaned up the seats really nice with a wire brush on my drill, only to find that the plugs don't even begin to go in the holes - I pound them awhile, they seem to be going in, then when I stop pounding they fall out.
I cleaned up the edges a bit with emery paper but am afraid if I remove too much meat they won't fit well and will leak.
So I guess my question is, how tight should they fit before they get flattened? Should they take serious pounding to get into their seat, or should they go in fairly easily since the flattening is what makes the seal?
