You may want to put a thread chaser through the holes as they could be a bit distorted or just roughed.

One of mine was slightly oval but a tap cured it.

I had to run a tap through them, they were really tight. 3/4 BSP if I remember rightly.

The steam water lift connection is 3/4 BSP I also have the washout plugs to fit and they are smaller than that.
