  • The problem seems to have gone away. The mfg has provided an opening in the casting for a fitting, or a plug.

  • Yes indeed. No problem at all. Start with a small drill bit and work up.

  • I have done it due to clearance issues. What kind of advice are you looking for? It's a fairly simple procedure.
