    Do you mean the fitting that you'd undo to tap into to fit an oil pressure gauge?

    Please note: I havne't done this install, or even laid eyes on what we're talking about. Just doing searches. :-)

    I have the OEM oil temp guage, the sender is fitted into the original oil drain. So to drain the oil, you need 1 1/16 inch wrench. At least I do.

    It'd be better to get a metric for a perfect fit. Not sure exactly the size though. It's NOT 17mm thats without the sender.

    When I asked the Subie parts people about the drain plug they said it had the temp sensor built in... am I missing something here? Is this a different drain plug than the one on the oil pan? It may be 19mm but I'm sure it's no bigger than that if it's the normal oil pan drain plug.

    Please let me know what's up, I've never heard of this and I'm always eager to learn new things

    If your looking for a wrench to fit the drain plug with the oil temp sensor, I believe it's 27mm. I'll go home and look at my wrench to be sure and repost the definite answer. I had to look in several different stores to find a wrench that big, finally I found a Sears that had them in stock.
