Post #29 Missing in Action!
Just read e-mail alert of new posting by "peacefuljeff", thought I ought to reply!
It appears to be MIA. Unless is 'appears' while I type this.
Are we having a case of the 'gremlins' again? This post should show up as number 30 or higher.
All of this info is in the threads which I linked.
You mean "NPT", typo showed MPT.
The 1/4"long, 5/32nd" allan key driven, 1/16th 27 National Pipe Thread (1/16-27 NPT), Brass pipe plugs which I used were purchased from "Fastenall". (Part#80742, 1/16BrssFlshPrssPlug)
Also might be acquired from Heavy Truck repair facilities.
You will also need a 1/16th-27 NPT thread tap.
I'll suggest checking Amazon.com for pipe plugs and thread tap. Purchase 5 or 10 pipe plugs they are cheap, like 50 cents each.
We may go smaller eventually.
I paid dearly for the tap, to shop local.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
