Default Missing plug on excess coolant inlet port on turbo chra

Hi all,

After starting a turbo rebuild I have discovered the only thing that sealed my extra port was rust! I am guessing that it got so full of rust, it pushed out the plug and then held seal with the new "rust plug"

my problem now though is I cleaned away the rust plug and now have a threadless hole in my CHRA. Anyone ever replugged one of these threadless ports?

I am hoping there is an easy and cheap way.

Pictures attached is the coolant inlet side with the missing plug and coolant outlet side with plug still there.

Thanks!

Talking Solved: missing plug on extra coolant port hole on turbo

Just wanted to say I got this solved I went to O'Reilly and they had a pack of engine plugs. The smallest engine plug "freeze plug" in the pack fit into the threadless coolant port hole. First I used a bolt and hammer to get the engine plug to the point of being flush with the hole, then I used a long 9/32 socket that fit perfectly into the port hole and onto the rim of the engine plug to tap it in.

hope this finds someone in need at some point.
