sbc front oil galley plugs. help please

i've got a question.
i took all the freeze plugs & the front & rear oil galley plugs out so it would get cleaned when i had it hot tanked.
i bought a freeze plug kit & it had all of the screw in type for the back & the center one in the front, but not the other two in the front. the one's that where in the kit where to small. the center one was a little smaller than the other two. this is a roller block & the plugs are a different size than the older small blocks. its a 305 roller block. where can i get them? what size are they? thanks

Did you get the block acid dipped?

I've heard a little bit of rumor about "off shore" made plugs that seem to have a tendency to not stay in the block. Diameter? Too soft?

Try the machine shop that did your block. They should have the correct plugs available.

I get mine at NAPA auto parts...but any engine re-building shop should have them. If all else fails...get them from your Chevy dealer.

The Pioneer freeze plug kits should come with the proper freeze plugs you need.
