Apollo tank drain plug - Dowty seal?

Cheers John.


Thought as much. Will speak to the fitting dealer in the morning. Could not shift the bugg3r. Tried with sump plug socket & Ratchet, then tried an impact driver - still no joy sad.gif


Oh well, at least the filter came off, and about another 1.5 - 1.75 litres of oil drained out of the system.


Will let you know the outcome

If you think about it, when you remove the filter (which is lower than the tank) most of the oil will drain, except what's below the lower hose (teacup?). Bearing in mind there'll be 6 litres plus going in, the final dilution will be 99.5% fresh oil; so why worry?
