HEY BRIAN: I would use brass with teflon tape or other thread sealer. The MC threads are iron and rough and not always dimensionaly stable, which means they could leak. Call manufacturer and ask them, I am surprised they didn't furnish plugs <img src="graemlins/nono.gif" border="0" alt="[nono]" /> DAVE

I found my plugs. They almost look like a bleeder. When you tighten down the center screw it makes a seal. Ever see these before?

What is the MC supposed to fit? I have not seen one with 4 ports before, is it for a newer car? What kind of valve are you using? Does the porportining valve match the MC? Are you running disc/disc or Disc/drum or drum/drum brakes?
