I still have my old '65-'66 Bowen 6 gal. Think the plug will fit yours? I will check to see if it is useable tomorrow if you want it.

Drain plug

Thanks Neil. If its brass and still in good condition, then I will take it. I will remove mine today and measure the diameter and let you know. Assuming it will fit is likely OK, but a measurement of the diameter will help. Thanks again, Bill Lewis

Sorry, Bill. My drain 'plug' was not with the old tank. It isn't/wasn't a plug but it was a 3/4" cap. The drain pipe on the tank is a male thread. I rummaged around my box of brass fittings for it but could not see it. It is probably enjoying a new use on one of my other many projects. However, I tried a brass 3/4" fitting for size and it screwed on easily. The cap or plug that you need should be available at any good hardware store.
Neil.
