Finishing up my 2.8 V6 rebuild and I don't have enough parts (plenty of extra bolts though) there is a machined surface with 2 threaded holes and a larger opening (about 1in) in the middle. The opening is on the oil filter side a/c compressor corner. It appears it would be a coolant passage. What connects to this? I can't remember removing anything from this location. I searched a lot of pictures but anything I found the compressor was in the way. Thanks for looking, any help is appreciated.

Do you have the engine torque shock bolted in place? It's just to the drivers side of the oil filter.

Yes I have the torque shock, the opening is above that. I'm at work or I'd take a picture.

If you were looking at the side of the block it would be along the edge of the timing cover. If the coolant hose that runs thru the compressor bracket opening wer installed it would hide the machine surface/hole.

Sure could be a fuel pump mount, that would be the right place. Larry

That's where the fuel pump would mount on a carbureted engine. The hole in the middle shouldn't go all the way through, because it isn't drilled out on fuel injected engines.

Thank you gentlemen. I guess I should have painted over it then. Getting old sucks, I would have sworn I didn't take anything off from there but there was a nice machined surface there so something had to go there. I looked all over the garage and basement (wife isn't to happy about parts in basement lol) for something that would fit there. Thanks again guys.

Man, was I out of the ball park with the torque shock. The picture wouldn't load for me until just now and I couldn't see that big hole. That is one nice looking engine. Very clean.
