hey all.
Sometimes things get lost during an engine build.
The new AMC heads came back machined and upgraded. But only now, 4 months later did I notice the steel block off plate (for the un-used water outlet) is missing.
Does anyone here know a ready source? I believe the bolts holes are are on 42mm centers.
It would be a better use of time to spend $7. on one than to fabricate.
Thanks for the assist : )

If you have a vise, and drill motor, and a hacksaw you can make one in a half hour or so, that being less time than you are apt to spend trying to find one.
