    a while ago, i heard about an adapter that mounts up to your oil pan that makes a 90 degree angle. it replaces the oil pan plug and supposedly makes it a whole lot easier/cleaner to do an oil change. anyone know where i could find one of these convenient doo-hickies?? thanx in advance.

    Try checkin Jeggs or Summit Racing. I'm pretty sure they have them. They are very nice, but like catching rocks.

    Fram sells them now, but the outlet is like 1/4" and the hose that comes with it isn't long enough to reach the ground. At $15, very small (slow) orifice, and still having an oil filter leaking when you remove it, I decided not to use one. Besides, it's just something else that can fail.

    Those fittings make it easier to change oil, but I don't use them because I like to use a sucker gun to draw out the puddle of oil on the bottom of the pan. With a little hook shaped copper tube, I can get a half- pint of nasty stuff out of the bottom of the pan where the solids settle. Seems to me to be an important part of oil change.
