Oh ya the Frost Plug I need to replce is the rear on the left side of the engine next to the starter. I also have a exhaust manifold leak on that same side so I'm removing that two. In order to get at the manifold bolts I need too raise the engine probably 6 inches to get a tool up into the manifold to remove the bolts.

Thanks for your responses, you answerd my my question.Now I will proceed with the job at hand. I just bought the boat, it's a 72 Reinnell 18'. The previous owner didn't get all the water out of it before he stored it and we live in Minnesota.He had drained the water by removing all the drain plugs and thought that was good enough. The engine was allso leaking oil, owner thought the block was cracked but he had crossthreaded the oil filter so it was leaking. No oil water mixing in the pan (yet). Gave him 500 bucks for boat and trailer with new license on both and new v-belt on engine. I'd send a pic but don't know how yet. Thanks everyone. Brad
