Default Removing old greddy oil drain

Refresh my memory here. I'm going to remove my around the motor oil line. I don't have the foggiest recollection of what used to be at the oil drain port on the pass side of the motor behind the alternator. Does a bolt thread in? If so, what's the size so I can pick a plug up. Thanks.

I still have that rubber cap for the day i do the same. I dont think you can thread in a bolt. You can buy caps at napa then just tighten it down wiht a clamp.

Well since I'm at work now I can look it up.
Yes, it literally is just a rubber plug held on by a clamp. I'm trying to determine if that's really cool, or if it's really ghetto.
The plug is part # B660-10-328 and retails $6.85. The spring clamp retails $3, but I'll get a $1 SS worm clamp instead.

Thanks fellas. And thanks for the PM Bruce.
Now I need to locate the tap.
