    6.1 Oil Drain Petcock choice?

    I'm gonna put a petcock in the place of the engine oil drain plug on my '07 SRT Mag.

    Is one brand better than the others or are they all good?

    To save me time researching, can someone please tell me the threads I need?

    Thanks for any input

    I use the Fumoto valve. No issues.

    Threads are M14x1.5.

    I switched from Fumoto to a Stahlbus kit.

    I found that, over time, the engine inspection cover rubbed the Fumoto and began to wear it down in a way I wasn't happy with.

    This was after like 10 years of use, though

    I still recommend the Fumoto. Be sure to get the "N" suffix. It has a nipple, for a hose, which makes for a clean drain.

    I have used the Fumoto for years and recently switched to an EZ drain valve brand, about the same price but easier to open/close and quality is outstanding

    How do these things last with salt etc in bad climates? The levers look like they wouldn't last a winter?!

    The drain plug makes oil changes pretty much tool free and zero chance of stripping threads

    Also it allows you to attach a hose to the valve so you can drain everything directly into the container meaning no chance of spills

    If you're running your inspection cover, it won't get any direct play with road debris.

    The lever is stainless steel. Body is brass.

    I'm running the Stahlbus oil drain valve. No lever. No clearance issues. One on the oil pan. One on the oil cooler, on my Hellcat.

    No problem with the Fumoto, just wanted to try something different.

    I suppose it would make the job slightly easier/cleaner. I would be worried about some crazy circumstance in which the valve is opened by road debris or squirrels of ill will. I would have to put a plug on the end of the valve to easy these concerns, thus negating the purpose of said valve. It's a cool idea though.

    Yep.

    Sure is.

    I'll have the car on ramps, tomorrow. I'll take pix of it, on my Cat.

    Change oil - clean and simple.

    EBay for best prices...

    Fumoto with the nipple here on my 2013 R/T. It drains a little slower but no more catch pan aiming issues. Same on my 2005 silverado for years.
