I just bought the EcoDiesel Fuel Filter tool that came with the Brass drain plug. What size thread is on the brass drain plug (Item #: LT-ED-PLUG)?

Thanks.

Now I'm curious, (but don't know the answer to your question) but why? It was a perfect fit to replace the yellow drain screw, very happy with it.

I also bought the EZ oil drain valve and it got me thinking. They(EZ oil drain Valve) do come in different sizes and was wondering if one of those would fit the fuel filter. If they don't can I have an adapter made????

Ok, just went up to our model shop here at work. Looks like it's an M12x1.5 thread. Looks like there is an EZ drain valve that fits, EZ-109. Now the question is how will the filter tool fit over that?

I don't ever loosen the plastic yellow drain. I put a gallon ziplock over the filter housing and unscrew it. Ive changed mine by hand both times so far no tools required.

I do the exact same thing without ever spilling a drop. I did buy the fuel filter wrench from EBay for $20. It’s the one from Idparts.com. Works great and makes everything very easy.

Doing mine this weekend for the first time. Stealer always charged me 1/2 hr labor when I brought in filter. Once reinstalled...how many times to cycle the ACC fuel pump to purge any air BEFORE actually starting?

I did x 4, on the 5 time the pump only ran for about one second, then fired it up and ran without any stumbling.

I bought the Fumoto F109S (short nipple) then bought a filter removal tool. D'oh. I will probably sell the drain valve now as I never really had a problem draining it before, and would rather use the tool than a strap wrench.

The drained fuel I used as solvent to run through my dirty EGR tube multiple times to flush it out. Then I dumped the dirty blackened fuel into my smudge pots to warm my small citrus orchard in the winter.
