I'm thinking some of you fellows in the south don't use antifreeze in your tractors.
If you are running straight water that might be the cause.
I'm thinking the old soft plugs might have been stamped out of a better quality, more rust resistant steel. Nowdays they may not be.
If you are running straight water consider using a 50/50 blend of AF. AF does have rust inhibitors in it.
Just a thought.
