    What to use when capping oil ports?

    I bought the block of plate through the online store and it didn't come with any nipples. I assume this is normal. Anyways, what do ya'll use to block off the oil ports on the intake? I have some nipple covers but they are not as tight as I would want them. I can zip tie them and i can still manage to pull them off. Thoughts?

    yes, get smaller nipples. I think the ones supplied in other kits are some kind of soft plastic

    If you never plan to return to oil injection (a good thing), I filled the ports with JB weld.

    ACE Hardware has plastic caps in this size. You can find them in the hardware section.

    I ordered a set of vacuum caps from the local auto parts store and zip tied them

    Thanks Bill but I am needing to get my ski together today. I will just go the JB weld route if I have to.

    I mean sorta, hard to explain. They are like on the fringe of me being ok with them. I am just anal about this because I don't want to lose any pressure through the intake manifold... which will mean boom!
