C-123 Block

Postby cub.bub » Fri Jan 08, 2016 12:50 pm

Need a little help, To save me from draining my antifreeze would anyone know the depth (straight in) of the 3/8" npt plug right below the carb?
This is my 140 C-123, I had a notion to add a block heater and wondered on the element length. I added this modification to the Cub and it worked out great.
Thanks, Bruce.

I can't think of the area hes referring to. I'm only familiar with C113 castings, but I know C123s have a few different things, like a dipstick for instance.
