I thought I had a thread about this but couldn't find it in a search.

It appears that the valves threads protrude into the oil pan and don't let all the oil out when you change it. I came up with a quick fix as I love the valve myself. Look here at the bottom of the page:

I wouldn't let this minor problem prevent anyone from getting the valve. It's super handy. At first I used a hack saw to make a notch which I think will work fine too. But I came across my small rat tail file I used that . 5 min job tops. If you can't do either of these things just use the fiber washer and a crush washer and that will help.

Now if we only knew how much oil to put in...

I HATE MY DIPSTICK...its always wacky....

Just to save the bandwidth...

I park level, I wipe it down, I have waited (overnicht) in some cases for the oil to drain.

Still shows like its too much...when I know its right...
