I'm not sure if this is placed in the right spot. If not, could a mod move it for me please. TIA
So I just replaced the gear oil in my transmission. Before I did the change I did some research on here as to what it would take to do. Everyone who had done it spoke of the drain plug and how much of a PITA it was to take out because of the exhaust cross pipe. Most recommended either getting a 17mm hex key and cutting and grinding it to fit, or getting a short 17mm hex head bolt, a couple of nuts and some thread lock and create a tool that way.
My solution was to go to the hardware store and get a 17mm coupling nut. Its fits perfectly and since its only about an inch long, its easy to get a wrench around it to take the plug out. Only cost $2.39 and didn't require anything else to work. Hopefully this helps some one down the road.
