View Full Version : Oil Drain Line....Correct Parts???

So my dealer got me my new drain line parts...came via UPS today. I think I'm missing some seals. Here are a couple of pics.
I believe so that this thing didn't leak, I should have seals on either side of the threaded plug where it mates with the body that the oil drain line is threaded into....

Did you call the dealer and ask them what parts are supposed to be included or needed for the installation? I would do that first.

If it were me, I'd put O-rings on either side of the hose fitting where the hollow bolt goes through, and I'd wrap the threads with teflon tape or coat it with oil-suitable sealing paste. Your hardware or automotive store may have some other type of oil-resistant washers or seals that are more suitable, but I wouldn't worry about the type too much since it's not a fitting that's going to be removed and reattached continuously and subject to wear.

That is an unusual looking set-up. I would ditch that ending and simply put a threaded cap in its place. That's what's on my boat and it works great. I see no use at all for the fitting as pictured.
