302 Freeze plug locations/help


Well I had huge problem with my car so the engine is out and stripped to bare block. No cam no timing chain nothing. Well when I was replacing my oil pump I found a freeze plug in my oil pan. If you do a search of me and my prior post youll see I have had drivability issues. Wonder if this was the cause.

Okay for the real question. Where the timing cover would be. Or by the camshaft I see 2 freeze plugs in right now. 1 of them is open. It looks like it should be plugged. Does anyone know where all the freeze plugs are in my car? I found out its a 80 block. Very upset about that. Different story. Havent had a chance to flip through Mr Haynes. Would it tell me in there?

I just see this hole and I am convinced it should be closed up.
