Help With Sump Plug

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

I bought one of those aftermarket sumps for an S13 sr20det and it just comes with a thread for the sump plug. unfortunately this is prone to leaking.

I have figured the thread size to be 13mm with a thread pitch of 1.5.

I am ccurious if it is possible to get this size and what other people have used with this sump. Tthey seem to be pretty common nowadays.

I no longer have the orriginal sump and cannot find the plug.

Any help would be most appreciated.

cheers

James

Hi Jimmy,

Im guessing you had the dodgy little threaded bit, with an allen key head on it?

this is what mine had anyways and yeah leaked everywhere,

I matched up a bolt with same thread size, similar length and used a copper washer.

no more leaks :D

whoa

lots of help here.

try 1/4" BSP plug

Well looks like you were right. I tried a 12mm, 14mm and 12mm o/s (read 13mm) nothing fitted. I took the allen key headed thing to a bolt guy who said "this is BSP" then took it to an auto place who found a brass 1/4" BSP blanking plug and it now fits and does not leak expensive oil everywhere.

Apparently old Land drovers and morris' had the same thread size. Weird.

Anyway, look like issue is solved.

thanx purple
