Ford sump plug replacment
Hi there fellow forder’s
Just a quick one I’ve just done a oil change using Penrite HPR 5 , HPR 5 5ltr Semi Synthetic 5w 40 - Autobarn - Oils/Additives - Engine Oils
on my BF XR8 and was looking at replacing the sump plug ( bolt ) to a Fumoto valve unit Fumoto Oil Drain Valve - Something good for a change
The valve I was going to use was the F101N , it’s the valve with a nipple on it to make an oil change a little easier by putting a peice of hose on the end of the valve and drain it straight into a container when the oil changes come around.
But when I rung Ford they told me that the sump plug “bolt” for my BF XR8 BOSS 260 was a ½” or 12.5mm UNF which was the F101N not the Ford 5.4L engines 14mm-1.5 F-106N which I was going to use.
So I’m just going to send back the F101N unit and there going to send me back the F106N unit and on my next oil change I’ll let you guys know how it goes.
So if your looking at making an oil change on your Ford a littel easier go check out the Fumoto Valves
