So I decided to replace the oil in the supercharger ( 96 Riviera ), however I managed to strip the plug bolt while taking it off. I was able to get the plug out with a extractor but now I need to replace it. Will the dealer carry a replacement plug? or is there any good websites I might be able to order one from? -Todd

You can try a junkyard if there's one near you. I'm not positive but I'd think that you can take one from any m90 equipped car.

Last time I needed one I got it from the local GM dealer, I was there on other business anyway.

...and if you can't get a JY one, you can likely get a plug that will fit at a full-line hardware store - look in yellow pages for a True Value or DoIt Center; also maybe Home Depot or Lowes. What you are looking for is the section of the store where they have nuts bolts nails and screws -- there should be some large drawers with what I like to call "odd hardware."

What you are looking for is called a "steel bung plug" with an Allen (hex) inset head.


Do you think you could put a neoprene test tube stopper in there until you get a new bung plug? That would keep the dust out... well maybe not... just sayin'...

Buddy of mine stripped the one in his car. Just used a larger size allen key in it and tapped it in with a hammer. Worked fine for the rest of that supercharger's life. smile Not that I recommend this of course. wink

Thanks for all the good info. as of right now I have the plug back in the SC but I only have it "snug" and should have no problem getting it back out.
I'm obviously new to the forum and discovered how much I loved this car when it safely got my wife and I from Tampa Florida to San Diego California!! this car made the drive extremely easy. I inherited the car from my father in law who past away roughly a year ago and let me tell you, this thing is CLEAN! 102000 miles on the clock and she still drives absolutely amazing. the radiator developed a small crack but I have a new one ready for install tomorrow.
You'll see me around on the forums alot from here on out,

Congratulations and welcome! baller

2 items;
- Was it the threads that stripped on your plug, or the Allen 'hole'?
- When you replace the PITA radiator, be sure to eliminate the "installation aid" - the short section of lower radiator hose and the metal nipple... Replacement lower hoses will reach from the motor to the radiator without those pieces.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have already read the write-ups on the radiator. Just to clarify, do I need to buy a different radiator hose to reach directly to the radiator or does the factory one work?

Eldo, to answer your question it was just the allen key hole that stripped.

I didn't need to order a special hose, the rad hose thats listed for our cars goes right to the rad

Well I'm doing the cooling system flush, and I bought a 180 thermostat. I changed the plugs last week. off to a start....
