  • Dropped my oil plug on the lake

    Oops
    I was changing my oil tonight and lost my oil plug!
    I've got a 1994 205 with a Chevy motor. One of the first fuel injection motors.
    I ran the hose through the drain plug hole, but lost the nut on the end.
    Any body know what size I need? It took a 11/16 wrench to take it off.

    Might have to remove the drain hose from the oil pan to match a new plug,

      Take the wrench with you to the hardware store and see what fits it. I think its just a standard pipe thread.

        Try 1/4" NPT (national pipe thread) I think that's what you need, any hardware store should have it for a couple bucks.
        I was njskier on here.

          It's either 1/4 or 3/8 NPT.

              It is 1/4" NPT. Mine also has an Oring inside the cap.

              Pram- I change my oil on our floating lift all the time. Run hose out drain plug hole, set drain pan on floats. Lots of opportunities for dropped tools.

                          Haha, in summer the water below our dock is 40 feet deep! Cheaper to buy a new wrench than scuba gear!
