    TR2/3/3A » Re: Aluminum Plug in Head

    From what I understand, the common replacement is a 3/4" x14 NPT tapered pipe plug. You can re-tap a bit with a common pipe tap. Probably best to use a socket head plug.

    It looks like the only adapters that they have available are for Strombergs and SUs...see link below.

    Besides, replacing Weber down drafts is not necessarily a bad thing. :laugh:

    Actually, those are BA (British Association) threads. The 10-32 screw you used is very close to a 2BA size, which measures 0.185" x 31.4 tpi. A lot of threads smaller than 1/4" on the TR are BA...
