Oil pan drain hose cap question

Recommended Posts

dtm8119

This fall when I winterize (it's really sad to think about this...), I want to replace the brass cap on the oil pan drain hose as it's a little rounded off currently.

Do you guys know the proper thread size that are on it so I can pick one up?

Thanks!!

maybe take the cap with you when you go to purchase,....they will be able to determine the thread size....

Bakes probably has a replacement cap....

the plug is either 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch NPT...pretty sure it is 1/4"...any Lowes, Home Depot or hardware/plumbing store will have one. elevate the end, remove the plug and take it with you to the store....a plug should be no more than a $1-2.

FYI You will find a 1/4 or 3/8" NPT cap in Lowes or KD... BUT you will not find one with the nub and hole for keeping the hose top side...

It is a 1/4" NPT fitting

Small hijack...has anyone created an extension to the hose? Mine isn't long enough to reach the rear drain plug. (That sounds bad, I suppose).

If so, how'd you do it?

It would actually be easy, would just need 1/4" female to a barbed fitting & some hose to extend it, I think the hose is 3/8". There isn't pressure so you don't have to worry about oil going everywhere

Have a look at the bottom of the page of the link posted above by teamerickson

There is a standard hose 36" & longer hose 60" option.

Either buy the standard 36" & get a nipple/socket to join the existing to new ( may be easier than getting under the sump) or replace with the longer one.

Saves having to find a hydraulics person to crimp the end fittings.

How the hell is it supposed to work if it doesn't reach the drain hole? What a terrible design!

I suppose. I live in an area where the boat comes out of the water for the winter so oil changes are done on the trailer. Gravity is free and wide spread. I forget that not everyone's ancestors settled in a land where certain time of year the act of going outside without the proper clothing could result in death and some boats stay on the water all year.
