You can also mig/tug weld or braze that bung on there too.

I didn’t weld or brazed any extra bushing to manifold, just tapped a hole. The nut/sleeve accompanied with probe had tapered thread – I added a bit of high temp. anti-seize and recon it to be sealed good. The manifold wall is thick enough for thread and welding cast iron without good experience seems like asking for problems to me.
