    Some of the gas valve kits came with 5/8" diameter aluminum plugs. Glue them in with JB weld and your good to go. you can knock them out later if you decide to change back.

    the best way is with 6mm bolts, washers, nylocks and a little sealant. It's re-configurable to standard valves, and easy to do.
