Universal m25xp oil drain plug leak.

My oil plug leaks and I hate it! It's not enough to loose a debilitating amount of oil but it's certainly enough to make a mess and really bug me.

My first thought is to purchase and install a replacement plug assembly. where can I can find one? Did a Google search to no avail.


Also, I currently have a hose integrated into the oil plug assembly. No doubt that it's intended to be used in the oil change process. My assumption is that there is a pump and or fitting that can be connected to the end for oil extractions. Can anyone direct on this methodology and what product/pump to use? I've been extracting through the dip stick tube for my oil changed and would welcome a more automated and thorough method.

Thanks in advance.

Jabsco makes a oil change electric Pumpout set up, you wire a switch and fuse to it and plumb it to your drain hose.
You can google that, or check your marine chandlery.

Re: Universal m25xp oil drain plug leak.

^^^^ thanks

This must be what you are talking about:
http://www.westmarine.com/buy/jabsco...-volt--6613558

It would be pretty slick to have a permanently installed electric pump. I'll have to see if I I have room (Catalina 34). I suppose the other option is to find an appropriate hand pump and build a hose connection that can be threaded on to the end of the hose that comes off of the oil drain plug at the time of oil chance. Much cheaper than buying a $320 oils change pump from WM.

Also, was able to locate and order a "banjo washer" from Toad Marine supply. Hopefully replacing this on the plug assembly will eliminate my drip.

West Marine is always my last chance, they are always too much.
Try defender.com, or Amazon.com
There is a hand pump type,

That's exactly what I did. I took the cap on the hose into a plumbing store and found the correct thread and installed it on the end of the hose from a Jabsco Handy Boy pump.

replace drain tube/banjo fitting with drain plug?

With your Catalina 34, please feel free to join our forum, too, if you haven't already. No need to reinvent the wheel.

Re: Universal m25xp oil drain plug leak.

Excellent advice guys...thank you! Looking forward to stopping my leaky plug with the banjo washers I ordered and hooking up a pump to my existing hose which will make oil changes much more automated.
