Default BBC Engine missing side caps?

I have a BBC and it seem to be missing those metal caps on the sides of the block, It has 2 holes for them on each side.

Anyone know where to order these? Also can they be pushed in from the outside in or is it more complicated than that?


Thanks in advance

Blue blurry,

Typically, those plugs don't just fall out, or even get taken out . if they are missing , you want to find out why they are missing. Usually they pop out if the block freezes, and usually the damage is further than just popping the freeze plugs out.
