Hello everyone,

I am fixin my exhaust pipes (rust and carbon, etc.). All fine. There is a hole on the enginge block right next to each exhaust hole (where the header pipies are connected to the bottom of the engine block). Is that some kind of release hole? Is it hole at all? See the pictures

Thanks everyone
Peter

those holes are the exit for the drain of the spark plug wells. they should be open. if they are plugged up then the well / pocket around the spark plugs can accumulate water.
