If'n yer worried buy all three NPT plugs at Home depot. They're 33 cents each. Beats bus fare if you guess wrong.muchos grassy ass!
My dad's a retired Seabee; He taught me to cut a piece of wood and then drill it 3 sizes bigger than the bit you're using. It makes an excellent drill stop.dredging this old beast up, I have a question. Having never seen the open ttb arm I am curious how thick is the meatl where this hole gets drilled and how much clearance is there to the carrier/gears? This may be stupid but I always try and put some tape on the drill bit whenever I can't see the other side of the metal being drilled. I am an electrician and have seen plenty of people not paying attention drill right into a wire or service when drilling entrances into a panel and it ain't pretty. Also if you use enough tape(electrical) then it will stop or at least slow the bit so no damage is done.

I can't tell you how many times I've used that trick to keep from ****ing up someone's underdash, especially my own.
