Muncie M21/M22 drain plugs (Points Judging Question)
« on: June 16, 2014, 04:27:40 AM »
If a person has an original M21 in a 69 Z/28 with a code of say P9D17B, for example.  If the lower drain plug hole has been, or were to be drilled and tapped for the Lisle magnetic drain plug, for the ease of draining and particle collection purposes.  How many points would be lost for this modification on a 1000 point system?  Would the judges think this was minor or say that an M22 drain hole should not be in an M21?  Comments Please.

Thanks,
Bryan

No idea on the points that could/would be deducted, but if it's a significant concern, pretty sure you can have the boss area correctly repaired.   Contact Jerry MacNeish - he's a top Camaro judge and maybe able to give you an idea on the deduct and he can also fix it.   Here's his site:  http://z28camaro.com/wp/restoration-services/

He restored my Camaro's Z drive line including some intake manifold aluminum repair - can't tell it was repaired.

Thanks Hans, I will ask Jerry what he thinks, this weekend.  I don't know if this guy would want to let it be and take the possible points loss, or spend the money to get it plugged.  Thanks for you suggestion.  Bryan
