Balance Shaft Delete Plug Orientation?

Doing this right now and have a quick question, for the OEM plug, does it go like this?



Or like this?

Door number #2, Jim!

And I think you're supposed to use some Hondabond, if in not mistaken, so double check on that.

Rubber side towards the Engine is right....like Picture one ......or do you expect that Mitsubishi did all plugs in the stock engines using the plug in the "wrong" direction.

Freeze plugs were also installed the open side away from "pressure"

I have seen that many times that the plug is installed reversed by some builders, so maybe it doesnt matter...
Ive done so many engines with these plugs in the Rubber to engine direction and have no probs....

This isn't a freeze plug.

It'll hold. I've seen them installed without RTV and still work.
it's an OEM part, meant to fit there. You're good.
