    I have virtually guaranteed, as much as humanly possible, that I will never need another oil drain plug again. I bought a spare.

    I used to have a double square socket that I made so that I could check the torque reading on my click wrench against my beam type torque wrench.
    But on the subject of the thread, I hate it when the manufacturer makes a plug with aluminum threads to be used in a hole with aluminum threads.
    Honda used to do that on their rocker covers too. I have seen a lot of those cross threaded or stripped.

    Couple dabs of epoxy here and there and you can have another spare. Of course the shade tree spare may be at the expense of a 1/4" tap!

    You are probably right Pelonius about using aluminum and thats why they use zinc. Maybe a little lead in the alloy or now with good plastics it could be glass filled nylon.

    I cleaned up the flat sides a little so I can grab it with a crescent wrench -- if the plug isn't to tight it should work. Still looks crappy.

    I found a pin hole in the bottom of the hole I drilled. Since I was JB Welding the plug in the center in place I put a little in the hole and pushed down and it came out the other side. I am not sure it was necessary because maybe the o-ring would have covered it.
