Thank you for the insight. Yes, I see what you mean . Maybe I can put a round rubber or plastic disc seal and drill a small hole to proper port this one. It was on clearance at HD for $5.

Yes, I would try starting with a pair of very small holes; one under the inlet port, and one under the outlet port.
You can always make them larger, if desired.

Started tinkering with my latest acquisition. 03 SLT AWD. 123,000 miles full leather no rust or rot. Vacuumed and windows. New wiper blades fore and aft. Rear arm was frozen so PB Blaster and lots of wiggling fixed that. PB Blasted all the door hinges, side door rollers and door latches. Much better. Interior lites dont respond to door opening so tried to swap the assembly from the 99. Different plug. I’ll see about opening it up and pull just the dimmer relay

When I drove my latest acquisition, the 03 SLT AWD home she had a bit of a skip. Today I pulled the doghouse and figured I’d start with a cap and rotor. A quick run to my local parts purveyor and the job was on. For some reason the screw on the far side of the distributor wouldn’t bite so after a closer look-there were no threads. Just a big chunk missing. Good thing there was a brand new White distributor in a box in the shed so now I’m changing dizzies! No surprises the rest of the way and the skip is gone purring like new. New universal joints in the 99 tomorrow.
