See if there is an engineering works near to you that can do Time-Serts. The kits are expensive, so not worth it for a one-off, but engineers may have one.

Well so much for Amazon Prime's next day delivery!

I've got this coming (was supposed to be here today!).

Damien, this quick valve intrigues me, does it not reduce ground clearance?

So I worked myself up to do the do!

It took me ages to get the tap in the right orientation, but finally managed to get the hole tapped.

New plug is in but it is still dripping as I didn't want to over-torque the plug so will take it easy as I do it up!
