Can't tell my mechanic was the last one draining the coolant like 4 months ago for a valve adjustment but i cannot see any washer in between.
Here is another close up picture.
Thanks for the reply bill.

The 'bolt' in the last picture is the oil gallery plug, not the coolant drain. There is an o-ring under that one to seal it up. That one should ONLY be removed for oil pressure testing!

The coolant drain is in the last picture of your first post, in the red circle. There should be a copper washer under the head of that bolt to seal it. Coolant can seep down the engine case then drip from the oil gallery plug.

Check the tightness of that coolant drain plug.
