HEY WAYNE, ALL I USE IS THE ONE WITH A DRAIN PLUG. THE GUY THAT I BOUGHT MY ENGINE FROM RACES THEM FOR A LIVING AND ALL HE USES IS THE ONE'S WITH DRAINPLUGS, MY NEW ENGINE HAS A BILLIT ONE ON IT, THE METAL ONES OVER TIME THE SMALL HOLES WALLOW AND MUSHROOM OUT AND THEN IT STARTS LEAKING. YOU CAN ALSO GET A MAGNETIC DRAIN PLUG .
I have a 1973 Super and it has the drain plug in the center. The idea of eliminating the plug must have started in 74. I installed a magnetic plug and now only clean the screen every other oil change. If you use a socket wrench when tightening the small nuts,you can hold the wrench down at the end of the handle(the ratchet end and with one hand only)you can get the nuts at almost the torque needed which eliminates the stripping problem.It takes very little pressure on the wrench to get a good seal. Just tighten the nuts as you would a tire(one nut and then the opposite). Even when the oil looks clean it should be changed because the molecules in the oil start to break down due to heat. Y'all probably know all of this but I thought I'd just blah,blah,blah.
Hello, I have a 1973 super and I stripped and broke one stud. How can I take them out and where do I get replacements? Also, is there one that is longer than the rest? Thanks!
I just had The Blues overhauled about 6 months ago and I stll have an oil leak. I'm not crazy about it as I recall the day when I had no drips at all. My VW mechanic said he can put some sealer around it all next time he changes the oil, but he says that's a last resort as the next time he does it you have to use a razor blade to scrape all that off to get a good seal next time. Is the Billit Oil Drain Kit from Mid American Motorworks a sure fix?
