What is the best way to plug the speedometer hole in the tail housing for a race only 727. Expansion plug maybe, but what size/part number. Or maybe a better idea?
Thanks, Brian

IIRC, P34C Dorman freeze plug was what I got from Direct Connection for only $3.

Regular old soft plug. Don't recall the size but it's not some non-standard diameter.
