Zinc Anodes in Exhaust Elbow

I need to replace the zinc anodes in the exhaust elbows of our CAT 3208 NA engine. They are located I think at the very bottom of each elbow. Can anyone confirm for me that this is correct?

The photo shows what I suspect is the threaded square cap for the anode?

Re: Zinc Anodes in Exhaust Elbow
