What fluid did you put in the PTU? LWSP right?
looks great ZPak! Gonna do my Trans fluid and hopefully PTU tomorrow. Got some extractors to get the drain plug out, damn thing was stripped out by previous owner.
I am interested for sure. Do you send them with how to instructions? Like what tools I will need to drill and tap the holes etc. New to this forum so only had the sho for a month. Really paranoid about the ptu now after hearing horror stories. Just let me know thank you
I typically don't send them with instructions as there are a ton of posts on this forum (and other forums like EBPF) and YouTube that show how to do it better than anything i could type out. The photos on those posts can explain better where to do it. But I could write a small description of what tools and so forth.
I would still recommend using the resources here though. Lots of very good ones as multiple folks have done it.
Let me know if you want a set and I will PM you the PayPal info.
I am in too!
OMG, I'm just now seeing your post...sent a DM...apologies...
Pretty straight forward. They work great.
I've sold out of my last set of drain plugs. I am doing another batch order for them, but need to get a bit more interest as I have to order in bulk.
I am having to increase the plug set price by $15 ($45 shipped, instead of $30). I'm doing this for a few reasons:
1) I'm up-sizing the drain hole diameter from 1/4" to 5/16". They will still have 1/8 NPT fitting but the drain cap will be slightly larger. Previously I was milling them out to that diameter and took me a lot of setup time.
2) I was actually losing money at the $21.50 unshipped price...it was unsustainable.
The fittings are galvanized steel fittings, but I am now also offering fittings that are identical dimension-ally, but in 316 stainless. These fittings are super pricey for me so the cost goes up quite a bit ($75 shipped), but they are definitely the cats-meow...super corrosion resistant. Might be of interest to those in very corrosive environments (coastal regions or those that get a lot of roads salts during the winter). I know it won't interest many, but just making the offer available. I will be switching to them personally when I do my next fluid change. These fittings will be pre-treated with PTFE sealant tape on the NPT side meant for stainless steel fittings as well.
Worth every penny.
Now if you could somehow add a magnetic insert it’d be game over. Ha!
Man, I was toying with the idea of some sort of small rare earth magnet rod that would insert into the hole (giggity) but it would need to be permanently part of the cap...I got no way to really do that as I'm no manufacturer lol...but yes, that would seal the deal.
