I got one second hand with it, and every other cover I've gotten can with one. Neither of mine now have a drain

isn't the drain plug just a regular bolt with a rubber washer on it? I know the fill plugs are some size of NPT pipe plug, choose your favorite.

Turns out the crack in my bellhousing is worse than I thought!



That hauled six or seven full (i.e. 1/2" from on the bumpstops) loads of firewood and four or five loads of ash and shingles. With one bellhousing bolt actually connected to both the transmission and the engine. I'm kinda shocked.

I don't need any, I have some that I have no use for. I think they're just a 1/4-20 with a rubber washer mabob.

Re: THe NAC Lots-O-Post Thread

Ahhh. I have an RS cover on my 30 but I only web wheel so I haven't needed to drain it yet.

(actually my front diff seals are so bad it is self draining, it effectively gets new fluid about every two months)

Re: THe NAC Lots-O-Post Thread

I had drain plugs on my RS covers on my old 44s.

Worked ok, but never really used them.
