    Hi

    The 020 and 02a/j gearboxes have tapered threads on the filler and drain plugs, 23-24mm ish. Anyone know what thread this is?

    Need a plug with a smaller hex in middle or a conventional 6 point nut head. Probably available somehere else if i knew what the thread was.

    Ta

    Useful info. :thumbup:

    Maybe worth PMing a mod to get this stickied or moved to an FAQ section?

    Tapered plug, straight hole.
    A bit like bspt. We tap straight holes for tapered fittings.

    Yeh, I get this, so if the gearbox hole is M24x1.5, the thread on the plug must be some metric pipe thread of sorts
