Okay, so now I cannot find a cup plug for this Melling M68 oil pump. I called Melling and they siad I have to buy a K68 rebuild kit which costs $30.00.
A new pump is $40.00 what the!!!!
Where can I find this plug? We have checked with 3 different stores and they do not have the correct size.
I think it is a 3/4 cup plug. I will look later when I get to the shop.

While you're in there, toss that flat tappet and stick a hydraulic roller in there.

That should be correct. I was thinking .750 off memory.

Yes there are a few different sizes of plug, just have to measure and source.

We don't have an Advance Auto around here and they don't ship to our location.
We ended up order this
Free shipping so $8.41 delivered. I don't know why the link has a different price.

Washington State in the little town of Wenatchee. The funny thing is the local parts shop show that is a discontinued item.
Thanks again.

No probs, hopefully you get this sorted now.
I just looked at Wenatchee on google maps, it looks lime a fairly small and remote place , nice to be away from the big cities. Im south of Adelaide in South Australia, tiny city really but still too busy for my liking!
