anyone rebuild an np 205?

For anyone familiar with an np 205. I've been looking for those plugs that go over the shift rail pins. There's also a 2 on the side of the case. Both sets are different sizes. One appears 3/8, the other 7/16 ... ish... Just about all four of these plugs were rotted right through. I'm hesitant to replace with new plugs if they're just going to rot out some day. 30 years from now, but either way..

I've considered drilling and tapping, either to a npt or a standard thread. Seeing as the case won't build up alot of pressure, if any at all, i dont' really see an issue with standard threads. Has anyone else run into this?

and on a side note. I can't beleive how clean it is in there. I have no clue if it's ever been torn apart before, but all the bearings are clean, and for the most parts smooth. all the gears look mint. It's incredible that 35 year old bearings and gears can be cleaner then half of the new crap I see these days.

that's what i was leaning towards. It would make dissasembly alot easier. I think I just needed a good push to drill into a good case.
