    My Selkirk came with a vac port like that, works great, just keep the never seeze to it (I use ceramic food grade...just something we happened to have).

    Hello
    The vacuum cleanout needs a longer screw and it is very hard to drill a hole in it. So I put it in and used a drill bit instead of self tappers. I made 2 holes one on each side to support the heavier piece. Then screwed it in and it holds very well now and I can still easily remove it.
