Drain and fill plugs
« on: 12.07. 2011 23:10 »
Hi Guys
          I was wondering if there are any suppliers that have made better Level and Drian plugs for pre unit gearboxes? Thanks Jeff

What do you mean by "better", Jeff?

The originals seem to do the job OK.

Hi Trevinoz
  Thanks for the reply.  I find the head on the drain plug is very shallow and hard to get a wrench or socket on.  Jeff

Grinding off the champher on the socket gives more purchase .

Jeff,
           You could always make your own by cutting down a standard set screw which would give you a standard head.
