    Sump plug length.

    Does anyone know the length of the THREAD of the sump plug? I can get a magnetic one made and I need this info for the manufacturer. I know it is an M12 x 1.5 pitch with a 14mm diameter but not the length of the thread. I have only just changed my oil and don't want to drop the lot just let to measure it.  :305:

    Geez Gaz, not another oil (drain plug length) thread.   :008:   :150:

    Dunno the length but 20-25mm would do the trick.  Can't ya get em at Repco or Supercheap?

    Thanks Fredz. I know but I did a search and couldn't find the thread length. I just put 3.3 l of Penrite fully synthetic 5W-40 oil in last weekend and then thought a magnetic sump plug would be a good idea.  :430:

    Well Fredz. Mine is JASO M1 with full zinc and I got 5 litres for $50. So when I buy the next lot I will have enough left over for a third oil change.  :031: :305:

    I don't know of Jaso M1.  You must mean Jaso MA.  I use this stuff and have for some years now. It's also MA spec.
