    I have to decided to de-smog my 80 B as I had to remove
the seized air pump to relace the thermostat housing
gasket.   I have located the de-smog procedure as outlined
in Landsey Porter's book.  He mentions pulling the 90
degree conneection for the Gulp valve and then tapping the
hole in order to use a bolt as a plug.

    I would prefer not to have to tap the hole with the
possibility of metal shavings making their way into the
intake manifold and cylinders.    Has anyone come up with a
different method to plug the hole ?   I did a little
looking around in the archieves and did not see anything on
this part of the process.
