****** fixed it **********A while back I had a starting issue, so i took off the filler bolt to check the level of the oil in the hpop. I had a heck of a time getting it out due the the last guy that owned this truck stripped it out. Once i got it out ( with a screw extractor) I replaced it with a common bolt and o-ring. I had noi leaks till this weekend. So the other day I evacuated my hpop to change the oil in it. BTW it runs better except for the leak from the plug. So I have 2 options get a better o ring or replace the plug. Any suggestions? Karl

Had same problem

Lost plug, it fell down into the bowels of the engine..... Replacement available as part of HPOP, was told.. So, used a bolt... Ground hex off head, making it round for clearance issues... Cut screwdriver slot in top w/hacksaw.. THEN went to find a 'gasket' that would hold the pressure..
After several tries, including O-rings, copper, etc..found a nylon washer of correct size, and that seems to be holding OK..
good luck..
