T-211 is the Fumoto part number. The reason is that it was available on Amazon Prime and was much less expensive than the Femco setup.

27mmx2mm and 1 inch x 18TPI are both non-standard sizes. I was able to find the tap on flea bay for $25 but it ships from china. I can't wait 3 weeks for a tap so I had to buy a good one. $99 but it ships today out of Chicago.

My plan is to tap the hole and locktite the fumoto valve in, never to be removed again.

Oh, the hole is currently 0.970 so I think I am headed down the right path.
Drill size for that tap is 25mm or 1 inch.

Next update this weekend.

Randy I had the same problem on my Cummins m11 450 Ism Striped leaking plug
someone had put glav pipe fittings in pan. when we pulled oil plug it was a O s=== time
This oil change a friend that is a diesel mechanic helped me change oil at the house. We found some brass fittings at napa that worked 27 m . Went to Florida and back no leaks and still ok. The next oil change I plan to pull pan and have it t welded and taped to put quick change plug in.

What about running the old thread size tap in and out to clean it up, then putting in one of those oil change valves with JB weld.

The M11 in my LX had an aluminum oil pan and I had the same thing happen. So I removed the pan (easy job) and took it over to my buddy's machine shop. I had the old hole welded up, then drilled and tapped the boss on the other side. Intstalled a Femco (?) quick drain plug in the new hole, one that would never have to come out. I seem to remember that I had around $200 invested in the job. Didn't even need a new pan gasket

Randy don't forget to flush out pan after you run tap in and out, I would flush with a little diesel fuel .good luck.

Well, I thought I had this issue put to bed but it seems I have been hosed by the Government again! I have the Fumoto Valve in hand.
I ordered a 27mm x 2mm Tap from Tapco last Tuesday because the had it and would ship it that day. We choose USPS Priority Mail because it would get here Friday the 13th.
Friday morning I track the package and it is LOST IN TAMPA!
So much for full moon Friday the 13th and since Monday is a Govt holiday looks like I may loose this battle.

As I remember Tapco said that I bought the last one of that size.
I will call Tapco on Monday Morning if they are open and see if I can get one overnighted and NOT by the postal service!

Bummed in Myakka City!!!! Parliament Rally is in jeopardy! I'm down but I'm not out yet!

Well, it looks like my rant was just a bit early. (or maybe the Govt was monitoring this forum) I got a tracking update 5 min after I posted this and it showed up at our small town local PO. I do love the small town PO. I drove over there and ask for my package and promptly got it!

Now it's time to get off the PC and get to work! Parliament here we come!

Ok one more post for future searchers.

The 27mm x 2mm tap worked perfectly. and the fumoto valve went right in. I did clean the hole out as much as possible and used blue locktite to install the valve. According to the TDS (Tech data sheet) it is also a thread sealer when applied correctly.
Oil is in and engine has been run.
If you have a cummins I highly recommend that you purchase the tap now off of ebay or Amazon. You can get it for $20 shipped from China if you have time. If you need it fast you are gonna pay over $100 as I did. You can get an ISX drain plug anytime.
With the Alum pan and Steel plug it's gonna happen, it's just a matter of when.

Glad you are operational again Randy.
I'm heeding your advice and have a Fumoto valve on order.
