What Size Plug/Bolt goes in here???

Hi I have a question I'm hoping someone can answer. I am trying to find a plug or bolt to plug the circled hole. It seems to be a weird size, I cant seem to find any thing close. I think its a 1/2 bolt but I am not sure.

Its a 1982 CJ7 with the straight 6.

Also, if i have to replace the whole part since the bolt cant be found, what part do i need? I cant find it in the Chilton Manual.

Thanks!!

Air Distribution Manifold

Renegade,
I believe the holes were created when you removed the air distribution manifold - correct?

I asked a similar question and the response I received was to look for NTP threaded PLUGS. Usually have a square head like plumbing hardware. I found them at Home Depot and Lowes. I had to torque them in place a bit, but it worked. And I used some high temp sealant, as well. Best not to let these leak.

I had similar issues and posted a thread awhile back:

I'm not sure how the holes were created, the engine was rebuilt by the previous owner. There are a lot of smog and other parts missing from this engine, which makes it very interesting to work on.

I will pass by Home Depot on the way home from work today.

Thanks for your reply!
