1/8" NPT. Not special or hard to find.

Go to a hardware store and get a pipe plug. I'd go with a brass one, but they can round easier than the steel.

My brother says the best thing about nieces or nephews is that at the end of the day you give them back.

He hasn't got any(yet). Oh how he'll learn...

since you are making a hardware store run,
these are very handy, especially with today's
water-attracting gas.

Thanks to Ken, I think, for this pic from the archives

Saw one of those on a 9N I worked on recently.

Handier than a pocket on a shirt. Go for it Tom.

Just picked one up today at ACE hardware for $2.99. Actually two of them. I changed the one on the oil filter also.

1/8 NPT Brass. They had both a box or square head and a hex head. I always buy the hex heads

I prefer this socket head style. A buck each at McMaster and comes with a sealant already applied to the threads.

Where and What is this McMaster's? I don't have one up here in the North East?
I see that you have mentioned them a few times.
