Source for Oil drain plug
 
Anyone know where I can get an oil drain valve plug? The kind that allows you to attach a hose and pump the oil straight from the drain plug? I have a Universal M3-20.
Thanks

oil drain
 
I have used a kit similar to this one on an inboard outboard worked slick but the materials are available for a simple setup from any parts or hardware store. http://www.amazon.com/Spectre-5971-E.../dp/B000BQ08QO

also saw the Fumoto engine oil drain valve doing a google look good.

Fumoto looks good, simple, anyone familiar with it? Thanks CWB.

I'm always afraid a clamp or hose will go with these kits and I'll have a catastrophic failure.

There was a resent article in practical sailor rating these kits. I can't put my hands on it now but will try and give more detail.
