    Ha...never thought about that. Why would there be a hole machined that far into the head? I've never heard of that. If that's the case, I'll just need to plug the hole and be done with it, right???

    Ah... that's simple enough. That would explain why it was eluding me. It's not there, only Z51. Did they produce the Z07 package in 1990 or just the Z51 package?
