Diesel Filter Drain Plug

Recommended Posts

So I was trying to drain any sediment/water from the fuel filter in the engine bay and I was an idiot and turned the plastic drain plug in the wrong direction...snapped the threaded plastic part off. I used a broken bolt/nut remover. I am sure glad I had that tool handy!

On to the question: Does someone like X-Eng make a nice billet/CNC-machined version so the not-so bright don't break it off in the filter?

Why not just buy a new filter and not be so heavy handed with it next time, it's not like they're expensive?

Good points...I plan on doing that. I actually replaced the filter with a new one, but wanted to avoid the mistake in the future...It probably won't happen again.
