    The EGR cooler took a dump on my F-350 and I just gonna weld the cooler and be done w it.I have found the SS plug for the rear (up pipe end) of the cooler but not the EGR end.Are they the same plug and does anybody have a source for them?? What ive found was on ebay and probably Chinese junk.

    They're not the same. The EGR end is a 2 bolt plate with a coolant bypass hose. Text me tomorrow. I may have be able to help you out. 828-691-5196.

    So your wanting to weld the plug in the end of the cooler instead of removing the cooler all together? I would think you could just cut out a piece of metal to fit if thats what you are wanting to do.

    if wanting to retain the egr visibly, cut a plate to match the gasket shape and use longer bolts and install the egr on top of it.

    I don't believe the OP is talking about where the egr valve goes. I'm pretty sure he's talking about both ends of the cooler.

    The question for me is do I still try to do a block flush.
