I rounded the corners on one of mine (Toy 8"). I remember way back that someone said Nissan made one (allen type head). Does anyone know the part number for this, or what vehicle they came on. I searched and couldnt fine. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">
Thanks,

you can get these from Toyota for $2.50 each (I think that's where AP <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> gets them). don't have the part number handy but try searching the archives here or on the ORC board.

The best setup is to cut the bottom of the diff off and loose the drain plug completly. Removing one of the diff studs works well for draining the diff. I weld a nut to one of the studs. This allows for easy removal of the stud for oil changes.

Why? You can't knock the plug loose all the time anymore, and it's not really any worse than undoing the original drain plug. Did I also mention that it's free?

It may be the "dumbist" thing you've ever read...but at least the rest of us can spell DUMBEST correctly <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"></font>

Here are the TOYOTA part #'s.

I have ordered tons of these so I know they are right.

#90341-18021 Plug w/magnet 10mm allen
$1.74 at dealer

#12157-10010 Crush style washer for plugs that go in the diffs (steel)
$0.77 at dealer

#90430-18008 Aluminum washer for plugs that go into aluminum (Transfer, Tranny, etc...)
$1.00 at dealer.

(Prices change from dealer to dealer, but I've found that some dealers will match prices. Remember, toyota dealerships are independent retailers and set their own markups. TALK THEM DOWN!)

Works for me...after ripping my front drain plug out several times, I cut the head off of a FILL PLUG (no magnet that can't be removed), slottted it like a big screw, screwed it in, and then flush (plug) welded it in. I replaced the fill plug with a magnetic drain plug so that I can clean the shavings off at oil change time.

Slower to drain, but it works. The plugs that Marlin, All Pro, etc sell are better than stock but they come loose too. Probaby going to do my rear this way too...tired of checking it every 10 minutes on the trail!

Run a couple good thick, hot beads around the factory hole with a welder while you're installing the low profile plug. The welding alloy is harder and protects the new plug even more. Do yourself a favor and check the lower 12mm bolts on your rear diff once in a while if you run a lot of rock trails. They'll loosen up and drip oil if constantly slammed with rocks, ask me how I know.

now you are opening up a new place for water to come in .it is hard to reseal the diff with no cover,you will have to drain more ofton and it will have to remove and clean and resealed sooner or latter becouse it will leek

probally cause you have never even wheeled you mall runner over rocks. i knocked out several of the low profile plugs out before welding mine in place and have no problems since.

it is one of the best trail mods you can do for free.

What? Will someone please translate this newbie-speak for me! WTF are you trying to say? How could welding the drain plug, and using a stud hole on the bottom of the diff let more water in?

Put the pipe down, and walk away, making sure to not make any sudden moves! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">
