Gearbox top-cover conversion

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to convert a top-cover from the push-fit plugs holding the detent springs in place(156665), to the screwed type (108166).

I have tapped the holes out to 7/16" UNF and have some brass threaded rod to match but I don't have a pattern to hand.

Could someone with a collection of gearbox bits let me know how thick/deep the screwed plugs should be?

Any advice welcome
