on the previous page you can see the oil cooler setup, where it screws in the block, i just took the plug that was in the f22 block out, and then screwed in the nipple from my h22 block, and then hooked up the line

heres how i did the first custom plug, just bought a 3/4 inch bolt nd used a grinder to make a spot for the oring to sit, i decided to go the plug method after i realized that i would never find a tap for a 20mm hole, or a 18mm hole which the 2 oil drains that needed to be pluged are. still need to finish making the plug for the 18 mm hole, just need to grind it and press it in

here is the old h22 water pump bearing body, and the pully from the f22 pump and the pully puller i used.. if you look at the pics its just a pressed on pully to a shaft

and here is the f22 pump body with the P13 h22 pull pressed on (used a vice and wood and a socket) seriously it says p13 , ****** pics

here is the motor with most of the timing belt assembly on it, note lower h22 timing gear already instaled

then a shot of hopefully you can make that out , it says F22B2,
then a zoomed out shot

and then here is the reason you have to change the belt in the first place h22 belt on the left, and f22 on the right

here is a good example of why the oil drains need to be pluged, no gasket material anywhere near by

and then here is the motor freshly deck 35 thousanths, with my AEBS head studs, awaiting a head gasket.

well i have more pics, if you guys are interested let me know, or if you have any specific questions, i can clarify

so just a thought. Since the oil holes you speak of are just return passages. That means the only thing a guy has to do is defeat gravity. There is no actual oil pressure to speak of. So if you were to go to parts store. You could get a couple of the rt size freeze plugs and just put them in the bottom of head with some loctite same as you would the ones on the block for the water jackets. Or if your uncomfortable with that. Use a pipe thread tap. And thread the 2 holes and use a couple pipe plugs. Then there is no bolt mods to do or o rings that can squash out or crack and cause oil leaks.
