I had an idea for this years ago but never pursued it. I don't see why it wouldn't work for iron blocked engines very well. However this probably also causes the filter change interval to be more frequent.

IMO good idea and drain plug magnets...you'd be surprised.

better to spend it on magnets than an engine, or Diffs.

good point. I figured there would always be come ferrous metal in there so it couldn't hurt.

That's a good enough justification for me to splash out $100.

I've always worried that if the magnets would happen to fall off after they have been on there awhile you would have a big surge of metal fillings flow into engine. Guess what I mean kinda like a blood clot getting into the heart.

With 800lb pull I'm thinking that's unlikely.
