Plug for EGT Probe hole?

I am pulling my gauges and need to plug the hole drilled in the exhaust manifold for the egt probe. Anyone know what size plug I need?

It depends on the size of the probe. Different company's have different size probes. Who did you get your gauges from?

Well If your egt probe has 1/4"npt threads then you would need a plug that is 1/4''npt. If its 1/8"npt you need 1/8". Just make sure its rated for high temp. or it could melt.

Mine had a brass pet**** valve in it , like you would find in an older radiator.

I'd be careful with the brass. The melting point of brass is around 1700 F, and it starts getting soft well below that. Any steel alloy should be fine, though.

hahaha, the system censored your petc0ck

These are SW Impact gauges. I will buy both the 1/4 and 1/8 NPT plugs.
Whichever I don't need, I will just return it. The bank is coming to get the truck so it really doesn't matter if it is brass or not.

Thanks guys.

BTW, keep an eye out in about a week for some really nice SW gauges and a SCT XCAL 2 in the classifieds.

If the bank is coming to get it, I'd just leave the hole and let it blow, or even remove the manifold completely. LOL
