    Will be taking cams out to do plugs. Don't want any metal pieces in engine. Plus I don't think it's physically possible to get in to tap. Pep boys and Advance auto have plugs in stock so that's helpful. Thanks again for the info.

    Any hardware,Lowes or home depot will have the tap. Pipe taps are tapered. Run the tap in until to can see about 1/2" of threads. Trial fit the plugs. If not deep enough go a few more round with the tap. Also when cutting the treads go slow and about every 1/4-1/2 turn back out the tap,keeps the tap from clogging. I'll go as far to remove the tap and brush the cuttings off the tap.
