Does anyone know of a source for the black LDPE "T" plugs that Ford used to plug the 5/8-11 threaded holes in the castings? The original ones are from CAPLUGS - I checked with them and there stock models come in red. To get black ones, I would have to order 5000 for roughly $250. Since I only need 28, unless there is a huge demand out there from other YT fans I can't see going that way. I've looked around the internet and find plenty of red ones, but no black ones. Was there ever a Ford part number for these?

Careful. Most of that stuff is polyethylene. Paint won't stick to poly very well if you're thinking about that.

I'd like to stick with plugs to keep the original look if possible. McMaster and all the other places sell red plugs, but finding black ones seems to be nearly impossible.

Try McMaster Carr I have bought black plugs from them in the past but smaller.

A Kubota of mine uses black plastic plugs if that helps. Most of my old machines use cork plugs and cork doesn't fall out and takes paint well.

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
