Are you going to hook up an "after run" pump/system?

> I just did this on Sunday.  I got the new feeze plug with the water
fitting at the dealer for about $15.  I used a large flat-blade screwdriver
to poke through the existing freeze plug and then twisted and pried it out.
Then I cut a piece of wood with a hole in it for the water fitting and used
that to get the new freeze plug started in the hole.  Once it was pretty
much flush with the side of the block, I used a socket that was almost the
same exact diameter to seat the freeze plug all the way in.  The freeze plug
hole in the block has a lip around the bottom of it to prevent you from
pounding the freeze plug all the way through.  Plus there's another freeze
plug just an inch or so away so you can see how deep it is seated as a guide
to when you're done.
