    Polaris part number 7051529. Check with a local Polaris Dealer. Those are drain plugs for the crankcase.

    I have seen a couple of that type of case.None of them had any freeze plug in them.
    There actually isn't any water flowing in the crank case.That passage is completely blocked off at the top by the cylinder.

    Around the 2000 model year,I'm pretty sure polaris wanted to use a kind of universal case,could also be used in the snowmobile.The snowmobile engine had the cooling water enter at those holes-then flow up to the cylinder.On a watercraft the water enters through the exhaust manifold to the cylinder and up to the head. Water never goes down to the cases.

    Brody, I have '98 700 skis with domestic engines and they have those same holes. Since they are ~1" in dia., I thought cooling water would flood out if left open but based on the information I found here, those holes do nothing. No plug required, just leave them open.

    There are some small pipe plugs in the very bottom of the case on the intake side, which Bryan provided the part#. Those need to be in place with the threads sealed.
