Re: Bronze Engine Plugs: Ok to us Teflon tape?
The point some were making was that a bronze plug on a steel part, in the presence of an electrolyte, will/could create galvanic corrosion. Steel would seem to be the better choice in this circumstance.
I’m also not sure, but saw mentioned that the hot water heating loop may be integral to the coolant circulation and couldn’t, therefore, be blocked. If that is the case, a jumper hose between the two previous barbs would be the solution to remove the heater.
Not saying you don’t have this, just adding to what’s already been said.
