The compressor continued to leak after being resealed, so I got a new Valeo style replacement. Before I was able to dive into that project though, the front block freeze plug started leaking. After a couple hours of work, I now have great access to the freeze plugs on both sides of the block. They will all be replaced with brass plugs as soon as I get the old ones out. To reinstall them, I am going to try using a palm nailer with a special hammer insert that I made on the lathe.
