Try a vintage engine parts supplier like EGGE. I have 7/8 and 15/16.
Maybe you can try to "flare out" a 7/8 one with the ball of a ball pein hammer.
give it a whack. It should expand it enough to make it seal. Put some gasgasinch around it too.
If you can't get one at your local parts house try mac's.
Measure it and go to napa auto zone come on they have them in 1/16 inches
Egge will have them for sure
NAPA and AUTOZONE do NOT have 29/32. They have 7/8, 15/16, and 1".
I'll check EGGE. Thanks for the hints.
VINTAGE, that cap I bought from you is working great, but I already burned out a condensor on the ZC dizzy. Dwell was set right. Are them things just a hit/miss type thing???
OK, well , since you have it all figured out, why don't you link me to the page on NAPA site with 29/32" freeze plug. MY NAPA and AUTOZONE DOES NOT CARRY THEM in this size, I CHECKED.
I do not want a 1929 to 1932 freeze plug. I want a 29/32" freeze plug, and having them in 1/16" increments does nothing to help me.
Here's a source-but I'm not exactly sure how many you'd have to buy. Good luck.
what makes you think Napa doesn't have it?
Dorman part # 555-015.....crosses over to Napa # CEP 2193072
29/32" diameter.....that's .90625 ----- only 49 cents
My NAPA said they didnt have one. I guess I got the reject counter guy!
Thanks for finding it, I'll get one through the locals
speaking of hard to find crap......
why does some allen wrench sets go from 6mm to 8mm when some allen bolts are 7mm?
gosh damn that's annoying....
thats what a bench grinder is for making them dam 7 mm allen wreches outa 8's
