Shars has/had a set of pins for my D1-5 face plate. Now, it didn't come with lock screws but a quick run to the local bolt store fixed me right up. I got 5 of them set to the right depth the first time! The other was backed out one revolution and presto it fits perfect. Today I plan to deal with the one sticky wicket by honing the holes with a ball ended honing brush. I don't actually need the faceplate right now but there are some valves coming to get a facing on the seat and maybe even cut the old seat out and thread for a replaceable seat. New tools make for a good day!
