Oil pump or intake Manifold Vacuum hole bolt

I replaced that cheap screw in bolt they sell, because when I went to unscrew it, the top stripped. I replaced it with an easy to remove brass bolt. Its the bolt below in the picture.

That's a 1/8 pipe thread, not a normal thread.

Yea, the place that rebuilt my engine screwed a bolt in there, messing up the threads. I had to retap it to straighten out the threads. PO'd me big time... :mad::mad:
