Evening

I have removed the core plugs from the Jensen block as it seemed prudent with the engine was out and one section between plugs was completely blocked, so I'm glad I did. There seemed to be some type of core plug sealant in there, looked like silicone to me. Is that correct or is there something better?

Also I will be replacing both crank and rod bearings. I know there is a thread further down regarding grease (thought that covered wheel bearings?) but what would to blokes suggest be better, graphite grease or lithium for the these bearings?

Red Hermatite - Silicon is just about OK if casting face is badly pitted/corroded but will soon start leaking again
