Core plugs for the coolant passages. My machinist said there's usually no reason to remove them.

I’m glad you could answer that, I was drawing a blank 

 

Thanks guys. I screwed up, and wasn't paying attention... I ended taking one out, thinking it was a head screw, and stripped the socket head during the process. zcardepot doesn't carry them. They look the run of the mill. Are there anything special with them? BSPT?

I'm pretty sure they are BSPT Male. It's a metric tapered thread.

If you google it, it'll explain allot, or look here

It's NOT NPT

 

Thanks, I was hedged my bet with bspt; being Japanese and all. Unfortunately, mcmaster carr only carried the lower profile ones. I ended ordering some thru ebay.

 

And for anyone else that runs into this trouble... I measured the plug to be 1/2" pipe thread (assumed BPST) and 20mm thick.
