That's the funniest lookin' Quadra-jet I've ever seen.

You might try a VW forum. We're all about 82-92 Camaros and Firebirds round here.

If it was just a plug, drill and tap and install new plug. No need to be brass. A 10-32 screw (if big enough) will work also, just use some good thread sealant.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the help. I bought this thing and whomever did the rebuild before me must have been a mechanical engineer from the Macgyver era.
