replacement bolt Porter Cable compressor

150 psi 6 ga Pancake air compressor
I lost the bolt that is on the bottom of this unit and is used for bleeding air and moisture from the tank. I dont need a OEM bolt and it doesnt need to have that slit in it... I just want to plug
it up. I t seems to be about an 8 mm but not quite....I cant tell what threads it has....
anyone know what size it is and the thread so I can get one at Home Depot...??

Is it a bolt or a petcock? There is usually only a few different size petcocks and it shouldn't be a big deal to find a replacement - they're universal, not brand specific.

Doesn't have to be that one [which is overpriced]

It's important to routinely drain the tank. That prevents moisture build up in the tank which can both corrode the tank and get in the air supplied to your tools.
