Is the plug just regular NPT thread? I know they arnt the same but on my 7.3 I'm almost positive the plug on the block for coolant was regular pipe thread.

Well you could pull the one out of the other side and take it to the parts store to match it. I don't think its NPT.

Also with some engines those screw in coolant plugs come with the set of freeze plugs. Maby have you dealer check whats in the freeze plug set.

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

It's definately NOT NPT thread. It's most likely an SAE O-ring port plug. I don't know the size, but any hydraulic hose place would have them in stock.

Sorry I can't be much more help than that.
