When I got the car I noticed it had no coolant in. It didn’t bother me when I fired it up as I was only running it for a few minutes. I’m starting the resto pretty soon, so wanted to run the engine with coolant to give it a test. As soon as I filled it up, it started pouring out the back of the block. Using the inspection mirror, I could see one of the core plugs has popped out. The car was stood for 10 ish years in a large wood/brick building, so it could have got pretty cold in there. But I was wondering, has anyone come across this before? I have done a reasonable amount on cars over the years and I’ve never actually had one pop out. Like I’ve said before, it’s all coming out for an overhaul anyway, but I want to try and suss out potential problems before they arise.
