    Doesn't mention what the thread dimensions are, which is what this thread is all about.

    OK these will do the job with no stuffing around just coat with kopr kote grease when fitting:

    I'm not sure if it was confirmed or not, but newer units may not be compatible with the bleed screws in that there is no seat for the tapered end to slot into and block the tube holes.

    I like Ken's idea, but might be a bit involved for some to be worth it.

The outer barrel thread could be liquid thread sealed permanently or even cold soldered in place if safe to do so.

    Of course it would need a seat....I stand corrected.
    I do not agree with 'any' complicated solution, although it would work.
    10 X 1mm stainless [& if not stainless Kopr Koted bolt] will work fine.
    If one wants to be fancy they can slot the thread with a 3 point file to near the top of the thread as a bleed path.

    The only thing I would be concerned about would be seat angle, but that is easily fixed if you have access to a lathe.
