2blu,
I disystemdn't have to google it. when I clicked on the post I got a pop up for it.
I didn't know who manufactured it, but I had a few pieces of heavy equipment with one on the engine.
It worked well, and lasted a long time. When I say a long time, I'm talking about 10,000+ hours. I had no issues with any of them.
They worked as advertised until I changed over to a vacuum evacuation system.

With my drain plug on the bottom of the pan, this would hang down much lower than current plug. I would be afraid of damage by something on road

With SBC engine the plug is off the the side, so clearance issue should not be an issue, was more concerned about leakage. Thanks all.

I guess I missed the link, googled it and see what it is. Suppose it would be okay but would not use one myself as i find it no trouble to take out the existing plug. Also if you are chasing antelope in a sage brush field the little handle on the side would catch and drop the oil when you least wanted it.

I've used these on all my cars and bikes for at least the last 15-20 years. I've never had one fail on me. Only issue is sometimes it can be a little slow to drain cold oil if the case isn't vented or the oil cap removed.
