So, how'd you add the drain plug, drill a hole and use a clamp on style spigot, or braze on on?

Hahahaa. I'd actually totally forgotten about that drain plug.
I can't remember what I did now
I'll check it out tomorrow
Pretty sure I'll have some pics of it.

I work on other projects too and must have limited hard drive storage left in my head these days

Thanks. It's a great idea, makes fluid changes easier and faster.

Other projects, hmm, sounds familiar

Getting sucked into motorsports when I was a kid was not the best for me.

Said many times why couldn't I just be into chess, board games or knitting instead.

It's a curse at times

Haha, yep, motorbikes, archery, shooting (instructor for both) , photography, models, poultry, organic gardening, jeeps. Even my quiet hobbies are time consuming and expensive lol.

Found the pics in this transmission tunnel Yep that's me



It's;

1/ 10mm dia x 20mm long grade 8.8 bolt

1/ Nut for above

1/ 10mm inner dia copper washer




I don't have a pic of the 12mm dia hole drilled in the pan, but drill that where you want the drain plug first.
Carefully plan where the drain plug should go. Watch out for valve body/filter/other protrusions inside the pan so the drain assembly doesn't foul with anything when you put the pan back on.

Make sure the pan is dead flat and smooth where the mating surface for the assembly is going, after you drill the hole.

I sparingly tacked the nut onto the pan in 3 places. Make sure the nut is held flat against the pan during welding/brazing, other wise the pan will most likely deform between the nut and the copper washer over time...and drip drip drip on your drive will annoy




Refinish the exterior mating surface of the pan around the nut




Exterior pic




Inside pics






I hope the info helps anyone out there

Dave
