Ahh sorry about that Steve. I ended up having another 15 minutes before a conference so I whipped up the diagram for fun.

Using your measurements (thanks!) I bought a 10mm diameter welsch plug and ground it down till it was about 4mm high. Bought some Permatex weld stuff (like JB Weld) and plugged it all in, making sure it didn't block the first oil hole.

I would like to say that this has been a success. So if this every happens to anyone else on the net, just get a 10mm plug and stick it in!

Thanks again Steve,
