Tranny Drain Plug

I went to the local Napa store today to get some studs for my future tranny pan skidplate project, filter and gasket for the pan and to try and find a nut and plug to put onto the pan to make draining it simpler in the future. I was delighted to find out that they stocked a bolt on drain plug kit (Napa PN 704-1914) for the aplication. Here's how it looks on mine installed. With the mandatory Ford Blue.

Re: Tranny Drain Plug

Ill be putting in my BM improver kit soon. If it doesnt already have the D-plug Ill pick up that kit. How much was it and for what though, just a mag plug and threader?

Re: Tranny Drain Plug

I just took a 7/16ths drill and worked it out untill I could thread the plug in there. It's a machined piece that is like a bolt and a nut and two gaskets (inner and outer) The bolt is drilled through the center and tapped with a small bolt which is the drain plug itself. The drain plug part has a small O ring gasket as well. Real easy. I had it on there in about 5 minutes. Napa PN 704-1914 $4.49

Re: Tranny Drain Plug

How far down does it stick? Do you think it will be a concern when offroading?

Re: Tranny Drain Plug

The MotorMite HELP! Transmission Drain Plug Kit PN65128 that I always use is about the same price (or a few cents less) and protrudes less than an inch. It's visually identical to that one.

Re: Tranny Drain Plug

I plan on building a heavy duty skidplate for the tranny pan real soon. If I wasn't planning on the extra protection I would have mounted it through the left or right side of the pan. (I've seen it done that way too) It does protrude a little bit but I plan on having it covered. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] NORM
