That's what I was thinking.......Could save some on pounding plugs in and out, and give some flexibility if needed for mods later on............I just don't know if it's been done or would work.......

Billet ones?

I have a new set now I'm using on a Dominator.

They have a shelf you press the cap down to.

I use some green loctite to help seal.

You guy's resizing the feed channels to .160"?

That's a thought. 1/8 NPT might be close.

Then you could tweak your threads to make it bottom at the channel.


Scott, this isn't something new to you, just to refresh your memory.

My replacement brass press in plugs were .260 OD and were .520 down a .223 ID hole (mainwell at the top) measured from the top of the block?? A 1/8" pipe plug is .390 OD and .240 long. A 1/16" brass pipe plug is .305 OD and .300 long. That's an awful lot of material to take out for something that isn't done often, ie, now often to you remove and replace those brass plugs? The press in brass plugs are the cheapest and easiest way to go, IMHO. ;-)

As usual, "Your Mileage May Vary!"

Ya know 1/16 NPT crossed my mind but I didn't investigate it.

I have some of those to block off the NOS nozzles in my sheet metal intake. ;-)

A 1/4 Snap-on punch fits perfect on the top of those plugs and fits with a little clearance in the channel and bottoms out nicely..

A small homemade slide hammer with a sheet metal screw on the end. Good for getting 4500 booster stake pins out.
