    That's why I suggested tappet replacement. I've seen the ugly results of not doing it, and for the cost of a set of tappets, I consider them a wear item. Unfortunately, inspection will not tell you...

    That plug is, I believe, 5/16-24. (It's the same plug as a pan sump plug, FWIW.) You should be able to tap it for a 1/8 NPT plug.
