3/8 if a small hole

a 3/4 pipe thread hole would be about an inch or more in diam.

I get a kick out of this thread. Pipe thread sizes seem to confuse everybody. It's funny.

Many aftermarket aluminum heads have 3/8" pipe thread holes for temp sensors. Mine do. The stock factory heads are 1/2" pipe thread.
