226 freeze/expansion plug size?

Does anyone know the size of the plugs? I have a couple of them weeping and would like to have them before starting on replacement. I think they are 1 3/8'' but hard to measure exactly
Thanks
Ed

I believe they are 1 5/16" according to the Parts Catalogs.

Well I finally got the freeze plug replaced and took the truck out for a ride, about 100 miles and all is good.
For every ones info the size of the plug is 1 3/16'' not 1 5/16 as the book says


Thanks
Ed

Interestingly, the chart above calls out two different sizes for block side plugs on the 226, 1 3/16 and 1 5/16.
