    Fumoto valve installation...

    I'm installing a Fumoto valve during my next oil change... Do I need to use the crush washer with the Fumoto? Anyone have any trouble with leaking?

    Thanks!

    Check out the website: www.fumotovalve.com

    It's basically a valve that replaces the stock oil drainage bolt. Instead of removing the bolt every time you change your oil, just open the valve with a small lever. Very convenient.

    I don't think you have to use a crush washer. The valve already has a nice rubber gasket attached to it. However, it couldn't hurt.
