I was going to use a wire brush on a drill but worried about one of the strands coming out and getting in the motor.
Thanks for everyone ideas!
How can I get core plug out of the water jacket it fell in and down!
Can I leave it in there? I was rushing again not thinking!
With the block dissassembled you can take a pick and try to move the plug to a location you can access it... thankfully I've never hit a frost plug into the block.
You can try to run it with the plug in there but anticipate cooling probems.
