    You can get a 12 x 1.25mm thread bolt to thread in enough to block off the port. I use little set screws that look like this:

    Surely that's a bad idea Doug as you'll damage the thread and make it useless incase you ever want to fit an EGT probe at a later date?

    It's clumsy, no doubt. The bung is permanently closed off when ramming a mis-matched screw in there. But it's expedient. Especially here in the good ole USA where we are metric-phobic. However, perhaps your local hardware stores stock the correct thread.
