I found that the ISM is a non-standard thread pitch and American.
The ISX is also a non-standard thread pitch but is metric and just slightly larger than the OEM American.

SO, by a Femco or Fumoto Valve for an ISX
Borrow the tap I had made and just run it up in the oil pan at the next change and locktite in a fumoto valve. DONE!
This is for the ISM .. NOT the ISL
Yup, I just was under it for the first time (really good) and its aluminum. Ratty too. The bolt is wet. It's not leaking. I think I am going to bring that up with the dealer as they cranked it down. Can't hurt.

Don't put yourself in a position where you have to change a pan... unless that is your intent.

Getting this back on M380 topics I would suggest to any 380 owner who still has a composite pan to put the parts together and prepare to do this, Cummins has a TSB out to change the pan to steel. You will need bolts, both windage tray and pan gaskets, pickup tube and pan as per the other thread I posted on the topic. The windage tray is the same.

Yes. Almost back together. BB used epoxy to fit the bracket that holds the bumper to the backing plate, one was coming loose, it had to cure over the weekend, hence the delay. Hopefully no leaks!!

Sorry to keep butting in on the M380 thread. I don't want to change the pan. Just not looking forward to the next time the drain bolt comes out. I like the idea of the drain port. I am getting one. Next year when I change the oil I will hope for the best and install it.
