Re: Fumoto F-106N Engine Oil Drain Valve

If you have the skid plates, the valve is positioned above the plate and pretty well protected while off-road.

Pretty sure the road hazard would hit the axle before the pan.

Re: Fumoto F-106N Engine Oil Drain Valve

Both my vehicles have the plug in a very well protected area. Even better on the Jeep, I don't off-road either. Not worried about it breaking off at all. The only thing I don't like is that on my SRT I no longer have a magnetic plug. But the pro's outweigh the cons for me. I'll never go back.

Re: Fumoto F-106N Engine Oil Drain Valve

Fumoto now has the F106S. It has a short nipple (about .5" shorter than the F106N). It comes with a fitting that snaps onto the short nipple with any length of hose you choose to use. I find that 6-8" of hose works great on my GC.

Re: Fumoto F-106N Engine Oil Drain Valve

Interesting thing is that Fumoto recommends the F-106, yet every user describes buying the N or nipple version. Is that just to have the versatility? I was getting ready to order the plain ol F-106 when I thought to research what others thought.

So F-106, F-106N, or F-106S????? Which to buy?

Re: Fumoto F-106N Engine Oil Drain Valve

The regular and the "N" is all that was available when I bought mine. The "N" allows you to put a hose on the valve to direct the oil into a container or away from obstacles. The "S" looks like it would address any concerns about clearance from Road debris which could be an issue on some cars with low ground clearance.. No clearance issue on the JGC, I don't have to worry about misplacing the adapter that snaps on to the "S". Any 3/8 hose will work on the "N". I'm happy with the "N" for the Jeep.
