So I am replacing the freeze plug on the driver’s side of the of the block by the oil filter. It did not cooperate and it decided to fall in to the block. I fished it out of the bottom of the block a couple of times and I just can not get it out of the hole. What is the trick to get it out? Or is it ok to leave it in the water jacket?

grab it with channell locks if you can get a grip on it and pull it out, you'll probably ruin it, so a new one is necessary. Good luck!!

Got it out using a small vice grips and a screw driver. It was not that hard at all, just needed a few days to mentally prepare smile
