Nowhere.
Buy a cheap v.7 tappet (M14 etc.) and use dremel to fit the nozzle.
Classic v.7 tappet is designed for asymmetric cylinder head (high nozzle). AGM tappet is the same, but with nozzle on the main axis of piston and cylinder.

SHS make a good version 7 tappet plate and they are readily available on ebay and in many shops also.
Use the original agm part as a template to scribe a line on the new part,the nozzle must be a good tight fit in the cradle you have filed out in the new tappet plate,good luck

I’ve recently tried this, just to see if I could do it, a bit fiddly to say the least, but the dremel tool is the real hero in this operation. Got it right first try, but the tapped bars are not that expensive if it goes wrong, I will put up some pic’s......when I find where I put it!
