I would bet that doorman makes a oil galley plug in the size you need. Have you measured it yet. If so post the size and i'll see if I can locate a part number.

OK I'll check 3/8 or 10mm see what is available and post some numbers.

Dorman is a brand of hardware available at most parts stores.

My engine guy just cut a little dowel on a lathe and tapped it in. McMaster-Carr also sells dowels in lots of different off-the-shelf sizes.

That's what I was thinking of doing. I was going to grad one from work when I get back (jan 4th) if I do not find a solution by then. I'm going to try and run by NAPA today.

I just can't believe that after about 2 hours of searching last night (google and forums) we could not come up with a part number.

The dorman part number is 555-115 it is 3/8 or 9.68mm should do the trick. The CARQUEST store in Churchland has it. If you call the stores in Va beach the can get it sent over for you. It's like .50 cents.

Thanks. Just got back from carquest here in NC and that's exactly the same part number I just got before I came on here! I haven't installed it yet, just set it in the chamfer'd hole and it fits. So this problem is solved. Thank you for the leg work Tim!
