Can get them at your local Orielly's, for a few different cars. I use them as T56 Skip Shift Delete Plugs after I machine the Flange off.

Once you whiz the flange off, what eventually stops the plug from turning in more?
I run it in the lathe and put a slight taper on it, once it digs into the case aluminum in that hole it self seals. You see in the pic how far in it goes and it stays there. Little RTV or loctite on the threads if you want the insurance but I've never had one come out.

Here it is in my FBody T56, same way in the Corvette T56 just a plug to plug the hole, doesn't interfere with the linkage.

Slick. I wonder how many threads would engage if you left the flange?

Met up with some friends at one of our buddies shop to possibly go down and watch the Flashlight Drags, main reason we were doing it was a buddys nephew was in town and into cars. They were calling for rain, but when our one buddy took the nephew for a ride in the Viper and hit rain a few minutes away we decided to just go get some food. Was a nice "spirited" ride there. Also got my buddy to go for a ride to see what the grinding was, he had a pretty good guess of it possibly being some friction material that came off and is catching it weird times

Not enough..if even any. Pull that solenoid out and you'll see where the threads start on that and how deep in the hole they are.

Well I finally heard something from Allstate...
Sad Happy Hour GIF

Gave me two options, wait up to three months for parts to come in which all repairs would cost just under $15K. Or total it & collect just under $22K. I only can have a rental at Allstate's lowered rate from Enterprise for up to 30 days so...

Can't wait so I started a hunt for a like truck. Hope to see one this weekend I do like & has what I want with acceptable miles. So I hope the bank & Allstate gets everything settled so the loan is cleared & the check is in hand so I can have my down & have the credit union approve the loan. Still will be looking since the market sucks. Really wanted my truck back but it's not going work my way.

I'd like to find it in a yard for parts!
