:::How to plug the heads' smog pump holes:::
Go to your local hardware store and buy 5/8" bolts. I bought 2 that were 2" long then cut them

down to be about 3/4"

Once you have them cut you will want to file a groove into the threading and make it like a tap.

use the bolt to fill in the hole for a much cleaner and less of a "hey look... i have spark plugs

stuck in the back of my cylinder heads!!!!" look... make sure you slowly work the bolt back and

forth until it bottoms all the way down... then back it out, apply some red rtv silicone or thread

sealer, and thread it back in.

I think it was Adder that posted this. Are the holes threaded? Because the pipes are held in there with plates bolted to head. I was was wanting to get rid of the pipe. Anybody???
