Default IH 234 Freeze plug questions

I had to replace a freeze plug near the oil dip stick on my IH 234 after a uncommon freeze here in Louisiana. I still have water leaking into the oil. Someone mentioned to me that there may another freeze plug. Do any of you know anything about that or where I may be able to look for that information?

Coolant mixing with oil is usually a blown head gasket. It wouldn't be a freeze plug issue.

Ok thanks for the reply. It just puzzles me the tractor ran fine before the freeze and I did have to replace a freeze plug. I just didnít know if there were more freeze plugs.

Didn't catch that this was a tractor on the first go 'round. Not sure that makes any difference, assessment wise though. Its still an engine with motor oil and coolant. The best ways for those to mix inside an engine is via a head gasket failure or a casting crack.
