Re: [DML] Re: Oil Changes

Hi Dave:

Long time no speak to....

The valve does clears the chassis.  The chassis will block and  
prevent any object that can hit or knock onto the valve.  My unit has  
been on for four years and I have change oil and filter eight times  
with the ease and the convenience. I will be changing oil and filter  
next week as for this season's "winterizing."

The only disadvantage as with the standard plug is that the drained  
oil will shoot onto the chassis, but the oil can be wiped off with  
easy.  The valve since the installation hasn't moved and it is still  
"clean and is in the same shape" despite the heavy vibrations caused  
by the potholes and the "lose" debris on the horrible NYC roads.

As for being magnetic?  I don't miss it and if my engine is braking  
down, the magnetic plug isn't really going to help collect the  
particles and I do hope the oil filter will collect the metal and  
other particles.  With this valve, changing oil is now is easier and  
I am motivated to do the oil change then with the "old" plug using  
the dedicated socket and wrench.  I can do this oil change very  
quickly inside a Manhattan commercial parking garage.

FWIW, I get pan that is five inches high (with a ten quart capacity)  
and I line it with a plastic garbage bag.  I slide the lined pan  
right under the valve and I open the valve and within minutes the  
engine is completely drain and the valve can be closed.  I then  
double bag the oil it and take it to a local garage station for  
disposal.    BTW, a second plastic garbage bag is used as a blanket  
to lay on when reaching to opening and closing of the valve and  
afterwards, the second bag to used to bag and isolate the first bag.

Now, if we can get a method of the same manner as to change the  
distributor's cap, rotor and wire in the same ease......
