Abs vs non-abs swivel pins

So I'm swapping my front axle with a disco axle and I've come across a problem.

The disco axle was abs, and so the top swivel pin has an abs sensor in it. The brake lines attach differently for disco and 90, so I'm planning on using the hardware from the 90.

The problem is the abs sensors. I cannot use the 90 brake line bracket because it doesn't have a hole for the sensor. I cannot just remove the sensor because then I'll leak gear oil or grease from the hole.

Can I swap the non-abs top swivel pins?

Cut the top off the sensors and right stuff them in place.

They make a pin for that but I can't remember the number. Ditto to the above about cutting off the sensor. I have also welded the hole full and then used right stuff on the inside to make sure my welds didn't leak.

I removed the sensors and after cleaning the surfaces VERY well, I "siliconed" a US Penny(coin) in the place on the top where the senors was inserted. Been trouble free for 13 years now.

Now the real issue for me is, if I want a new swivel pin w/o the sensor hole, is one available ..... maybe one from a 110?
The pins for D90's w/o the sensors are of a smaller diameter, the swivel ball is different, etc.

I've used vinyl plugs, but this is the best idea in this thread. Just my .02$

I plugged the hole then filled it with right stuff. Then just install 90 brake hose bracket on top.
