Engine Block Holes

Here is a close view of both holes in the engine block

This is the far view of the passenger side engine block


Hi everyone! My wife and I just bought a 1983 Bronco 5.0 and are trying to rebuild the engine. But we are having some problems and I'm hoping someone could answer my questions...

When we tried to fill the coolant, we found it pouring out of 2 holes in the engine block where bolts use to be (not there anymore!). It's on the passenger side, between the spark plugs and alternator. Can anyone tell me what goes in there and what they're for? I can't seem to find a bolt that fits!

well in the top picture the hole on the right would take a bolt/stud for the negative battery cable and also that bracket you see in the pic for the starter cable bundle. As for the hole on the left if its threaded I say throw a short bolt in there with some copper rtv and call it a day.

Thanks

Thank you! I was hoping that the left hole wasn't supposed to be some type of important plug. I'll keep trying to find the right bolt...
