Anyone know what size of tubing will slip over the nipple on a Fumoto?


Thanks

Its a ball valve that takes the place of the oil drain plug. Get the one with the nipple for a hose and it make for the easiest or neatest oil changes. You can also add a spring clip to keep the lever in position. I threaded the nipple on mine and keep a bolt screwed in for a little insurance (not my orig. idea). Very nice esp. if you have the skid plate/oil trap.



I changed it out on mine at the first oil change. It does raise the drain level because it sticks in the pan a bit. I usually put mine up on ramps when I change anyway. I change the oil frequently more cheap insurance. IMO

Thanks for the tubing size. I have one just waiting to go on as soon as it gets to freezing here



Right now it's 12 deg outside, supposed to warm up to 32 on Sunday.

Cold weather wrenching is good ... can't feel the pain when you bloody those knuckles.

3/8" was the ticket. Few drops of oil on the floor is all I had.


Thanks guys.

I know! I keep telling my wife that when I retire we're moving our bas of operations to your neck of the woods. As she does is whine about not wanting to live in Texas.



We need a road trip for some Barbique, Texas style
