removing pyro from manifold, what to use to plug the hole?

I'm getting ready to trade in my 2002 on a newer truck. I am going to switch all the pillar mounted gages over to the new one. The only problem I am expecting is the pryo. I drilled and tapped a hole in the drivers side exhaust manifold. When I remove the pyro, what sould I use to plug up the hole?

Find a bolt of same thread as the sender and put it in there. If the sender has been there without any problem, why not a bolt?

Go to your local hardware store. I.E. LOWES, HOME DEPOT, ETC... And buy a plug or small bolt with the same size & thread pitch as your pyro had and stick it in there...

Yeah, leave the fitting in the manifold, and just go get a new brass plug. I doubt you'll get that fitting out of the manifold, and could cause damage. You should be able to get a new fitting from the same parts house as the brass plug

I found a non-brass 1/4 NPT plug at the local hardware store (not HD, LOWES etc. They only had brass).

2002 F-250 is gone and the '06 Dually is home.

Thanks for the help guys...
