Exclamation Picture of Freeze Plug Location ?

Could anyone post a picture of the freeze-plug locations on a 3.0 V-6 ?
Both the Head and the Block.... I have a leak that I can see and i'm thinking its a freeze plug.

I have one of the Ford Factory Service CD's, but they are such a pain to search for something, you just about have to stumble across it to find something.

Just for your information, there are a couple of freeze plugs that are on the back of the engine, behind the bell housing. ( Have to remove transmission to reach them.) There are also a couple on the back of the heads I think.

A total of 9 freeze plugs....
1 in each ends of the heads = 4 at 1 1/4" ,
2 at the end between the block and Transmision = 2 at 1 1/2",
3 in the sides of the block 2 on one side and 1 on the other by the motor mounts = 3 at 1 1/2"
For a total of 9
4 - 1 1/4" 5 - 1 1/2"
If you replace one, replace them all. Make sure you replace them with Brass ones.
