    DrBuick I have a favor to ask of you....

    I just changed the oil on my cat and I didn't think of this until after so I never measured.

    I'm thinking of replacing the oil cooler drain plug with a Fumoto valve or EZ Drain next time I change the oil.

    Next time you have a cat in the shop for an oil change would you mind measuring the size and thread pitch of the oil cooler drain plug please.

    Thank you! For your trouble I'll ask Tammie to text you some pictures of her cat.

    The size and thread pitch is in one of these threads about oil changes.. I just read it this weekend. Cooler and pan sizes were listed by someone.. Im just too lazy to look for it right now.

    I might have missed the thread. I'll look around. I posted up info. on the oil change but I only listed the size of the socket needed... Maybe somebody else posted up thread size and pitch.... The cooler drain is an accident waiting to happen. The drain is in the aluminum line with nothing supporting it... Thanks. I'll go search.

    Yes, the oil cooler drain plug. Thank you B5 Blue and StellasHC

    Too many threads.. Can't keep up with them all...

    EZ Oil Drain EZ107 and Fumoto F107 both look like options M12 x 1.75. I used Fumoto before but I'm liking the viton o-ring on the EZ oil drain vs. the fiber washer on the Fumoto.

    That was one of my jobs to remember picky stuff to fix stuff;) So when you get this are you going to add it to the Wiki oil change for us? The one with 20 fasteners:D

    Sure, I actually just added the valve, L adapter and a secondary lock (just a clamp) to my cart from a site that sells the EZ Drain but then I decided to hold off. I want to verify the size before ordering. Otherwise I'll end up with $50 worth of stuff that I can use or return by the time I do my next change.

    If folks are confident that TallCool1 measurements are correct I can write it up now. I'm just not sure if he got the info. from a reference somewhere or actually measured the drain plug himself... I'd prefer the latter to be sure. Maybe he will see this since I tagged him and chime in.

    SRC... Double check me but I think my measures are pretty close to what Dak59RT lists on the magnetic drain plugs. Let me know if you see different if it would affect magnetic plug selection different don't think so but keep me honest tks. And tks Dak59RT a(nd Dr. B. I did rely on his data as well...)
