finkellll based on the links for the drain plugs I should be getting a 1/2"-20 correct? Looks like the 5/8" is just the nut that sticks out of the opening.

If you really read my responses I only admitted that it MIGHT be better, but that I didn't think it was that big of a deal. Seems you must push as hard as you can to make a point you have already made several times though!

Do you need to continue to bring it up again and again? You do realize that others can read more than just the last post, right?

Have you looked into some specialty shops? There's a shop called Acklands Grainger in Canada that sells industrial type equipment/supplies, and I've seen 1/4" diameter ball valves there before.

At $30 or so, honestly, I'd suggest just getting the Fumoto or Fram. You'll probably spend about $15-20 for the valve itself, and will likely need an extension as well, that will likely be $5-10. For the small savings, I'd suggest getting the Fumoto/Fram, and knowing that it will be compatible for use in high temperature, and oily conditions. Just my

Do yourself the favor and spend the $0.50 or so on a washer that will orient it in a significantly safer position, ideally at the 9 'o' clock position on the Kappa.

Maxima Just make sure if you go with either, you need the extension, and don't be lazy and use the supplied washers that will orient the Fumoto in a dangerous position (facing downwards as JimVonBaden's does, is the worst possible position for install on the kappa). Do yourself the favor and spend the $0.50 or so on a washer that will orient it in a significantly safer position, ideally at the 9 'o' clock position on the Kappa.

You should be able to use the Fumoto's extension with the Fram Sure Drain.

In either case, it will probably end up costing you about $30 by the time you're done. Shop around for the extension, prices on that vary greatly. The valves themselves are pretty closely priced otherwise. And just my personal opinion on this one, but get the Fumoto with the nipple, or the Fram Sure Drain. That way, you can attach a hose, and drain oil directly into a bottle, instead of needing a catch pan. Definitely makes oil changes faster/easier than doing it without a hose and a catch pan.

If you want cheap, go to your local auto parts store and pick up one of the alternative ones like Maxima has. www.amazon.com and search sure drain.
