Coolant plug in block

Does anyone know what that plug is called offically? Its the one with the ratchet head just to the right of the oil cooler. Mine has corroded out and leaked the coolant. I called Ford/Inernational and they dont see the part in their system. What about a part number? Or what about the thread size/type incase I can find a bolt to shove in there...

I wouldn't use a bolt as the threads on this pipe plug should be a tapered pipe thread. You can replace this plug at a plumbing store. Should be a common part.
