I don't know, is it really that hard just to undo the sump bolt.
They don't appear to be as secure as a sump bolt and I would hate to be left high and dry in the middle of no where just for convenience sake.

Count me out.

No new copper washers to find every time for starters.
No droping a sump plug in a bath of hot oil for seconds.
No mess, no fuss.

Had one on my paj for about 3 years. No problems.
Also had one on my 5LT Statesman. No problems.

I took mine swimming in the soup at Levuka a few times. No problems.

I fitted one at my last oil change, not due just yet for the next change.
On the Paj it's up out of the way of any potential problems.
In the past I've had all sorts of problems draining the oil, from dropping the plug into the oil and oil running down my arm. I can't see that happening now.
I looked at fitting one to my Holden but it would hang too low.

My concern is this. How far does the thread extend into the sump? Could be you're leaving 1-200ml of dirty oil that never gets changed?

If you pull the sump plug out you always get the maximum possible oil removal.

Anyone seen one fitted into a removed sump or done a careful measure of thread length?

Boy some people get a***l.. I suppose you do a full flush of the engine every oil change too? And make sure the car is on a side slope to get the last mil or 2 out?

Seriously, any extra amount that may or may not be left behind due to one or 2 extra threads into the sump, as compared to what may have been left behind because the engine was not hot enough, not level enough to drain properly etc is completely immaterial.

I've used these valves on 2 cars over several years and not had ANY issues with draining ALL the oil / not draining ALL the oil, or any other thing you may dream up.

If my experience with them is not good enough well....

Default Thread Size for PB Challenger

Hi All,

Re: fitment of a Fumoto valve, can anyone tell me what the thread size is for the sump drain plug on the PB Challenger ?

An M14 x 1.5 seems common from what I've read of MITS vehicles, . . . but I want to be sure to be sure before purchase.
