Especially with the 1/4" BSP drain plugs on some 300TDis, lots of folks have managed to strip the threads in the bung by over tightening. The Fumoto drain thingmo allows you to torque the valve into the bung and never have to do so again. And it makes it freaking easy to drain the oil--just remove the plastic safety clip, rotate the handle, and oil comes out in a very gentlemanly way, without squirting all over the driveway by shooting past your oil pan, or getting all over your arm.

I used it sooner than I thought I would when I realized the first gallon of oil I'd put in after the oil change was the wrong weight. . . it is indeed ridiculously easy to drain the oil.

You'll still get oil all over everything when you do the filter, though. . .

All my vehicles have had Fumoto for decades. Get the ones with the hose barb. A little length of hose and it is mess free.

Totally meant to get one with the barb but then got so focused in the adapter that I spaced it. Fortunately it's still remarkably non messy even without the hose.

What size/model works on the V8 oil pan? Anyone know?

Edit: Their site sucks. Looks most likely to be the t-202N (but I haven't tried it personally). This is the nippy version and t-202ns is short nipple which may be better--which I would want to facilitate the 90 degree turn.

Would love to know the best one for the V8 as well. Also, do you buy from their site or a third party retailer?

Woah I just got the normal Mantec branded one. I didn't know there was a LR one.

Is there a difference?

Bought a TD5

Today I bought my first Landrover.

It's a 2004 TD5 in black. It's being delivered later in the week.

Wishing the week away

Replaced the mushroomed, flaking chrome lash caps in my truck with the Empi hardened caps.

Cheap at $8 and they fit like original.

Happily an Engine, transmission, and transfercase all fit in a 110 as one unit (HS 2.8, HP22, LT230), Even better that it came out without damaging anything or dropping the whole thing.

If you've got a ROW V8 maybe try the fumoto.co.au (iirc) site or the U.K. One. I ordered direct from the aus. branch since I needed the BSP adapter only they had. Their customer service was superb--maybe try the customer service folks in your vehicle's country of origin for clarification on what'll fit? Also, if you can figure out your plug thread, it's a no brainer.

What did you clean the inside of the chassis with before you sprayed it?

It is a bit limited what you can do for prep.. but I used some compressed air in a few of the holes to get some of the dust and dirt out. then used another Eastwood product that was a rust converter. It came in a can and I sprayed that with the hose from the Internal Chassis coating. I guess its kinda like ospho just in a pressurized can. I let that dry then hit it with the Internal Chassis. Its not perfect but I figure anything I can do will help lol

note that Eastwood does not recommend using the rust converter because if it gets on any exterior part of the chassis "it will not be paintable" but I figured I could keep the outside pretty clean.
