Default Oil drain torque 2003 Lx Aluminum pan.

I had this going over on the M380 forum. I got the idea they wanted it over here lol. It was last year anyway.

I found this coach last year it had a drip from the drain bolt. I asked the dealer and they got it stopped. It was good over the last few trips. Last night I was down under and noticed it leaking again.

I guess I should be ready for anything right now. I do want to try to tighten it to the correct torque first thing. Last thing I want to do it finish stripping it.

I have looked around and found some threads about stripped pans. Just not the torque.

Maybe get it squeaky clean and install a Fumoto valve. Could even epoxy one in if the threads are loose.

Also, many of the oil pans have multiple drain ports. If the threads are going bad on this one and one of the side ports is also a low port, you could plug the current drain and put a quick drain in the side drain. Let us know what you decide.
Good luck

I had to retap mine and go up to the ISX size. Randy Shrimplin loaned me the tap.

Thanks guys. Plastic gasket, check. Fumoto valve if it's stripped. I didn't know the ISX bung was bigger. It's a good idea. If it is, that's the way i will go I think.

George, it's a Cummins. Thanks anyway. I did look at the Cummins site.

I just wanted to see what the other guys are doing and I got all these good ideas. I'll be tackling it in a few weeks. Have to run up north (to the cold) for business this next week. Now that I got a small aircraft hanger out back I want to do a ton of things to that too. It never ends lol. Like the bird isn't t a hobby!
