No recommendation on size and source for the nuts and fill plugs?!

Follow the link in the original post. Nothing too special just welded a nut inside the diff cover.

Not a bad fix for an annoying problem. Definitely use thread tape when you install the plug as it has tapered threads and the nut will have straight threads. You can generally run tapered threads together enough to seal non pressure situations without thread tape but a straight and tapered needs something.

We don't need a mod for fill plugs, we need a mod for -Drain- plugs! lol
That would be a whole lot easier to change the diff-fluid if you didn't have to take the diff cover off... I'll get on it right away.

depends on what you use..you could use a piece of pipe coupling and pipe plug ..I would use pipe tape probably on that..or you could use a fine thread bolt and nut with either a teflon or rubber washer

you could drill a hole toward the bottom of your cover and weld a nut in it..
