Blocked channels?

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am just about to put the cylinder head back on to the block and was doing a final check of waterways etc.  Can anyone tell me if the highlighted should be clear i.e. a channel of some sort or should be blanked./blocked off as they appear to be

Just want to make sure all is good before the reassemble.

Those are holes that held the block while machining or something.. 

I've done a mod ('Sparky Spit' showed me it).

A bronze bush was inserted there on mine (made out if a bronze valve guide).

As the gasket typical fails at the hole.. like mine did.
