Just get 3/4" NPT brass plugs for the manifolds and 1/4" NPT for the block. I replaced all of the plugs on my boats very early on.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

x 2 on the brass plugs, every hardware store sells 'em. It would be worth your while to get appropriate sized taps to chase the threads, then use some Never-Seeze. Teflon tape is good too, but I'm not sure if it will work as well to keep rust from forming on your newly-cleaned threads. Or, use Never-Seeze and teflon. (Hard to keep that MCOCD under control)
