V8 oil pump/gallery plugs ?

Recommended Posts

Try as I might, I cannot find any info on these !

On a Discovery 2 V8 4.0, fitted to the oil pump body (crank driven serpentine) there are two blanking plugs. These close off the oil feed and return to an engine oil cooler if the cooler is NOT fitted.

I assume the Disco 2 did not have a cooler fitted, unlike the P38 RR which did, or maybe as an option only.

However, I would like the part number of these plugs, or the info/spec of them please ?

Thank you

M20 as fridge said, pitch is 1.5

You really need the unshouldered type, (the allen key type), as the casting doesn't have a flat shoulder to seal against.

I got regular type but used a bit of loctite thread sealant on the threads, so far so good.
