Fumoto valve plug for 7.3 oil pan bolt swap?

Which Fumoto valve will work on the 7.3? I think this would work well for the oil change process, anyone use this? thanks

i would get one, but i don't like the idea of something hanging off the oil pan. with my luck something would fly up from the car in front of me and snap it off draining all the oil.

I used to have one. They work great as long as you have all day to change your oil. I am way too impatient to use one. I wound up pulling it out and using it like a regular drain plug

Something to consider.. If you go off road the fomoto valve has a good chance of getting snapped off

I was worried about that same issue before I bought mine. Then I realized that I would have to rip the axle off first and stopped worrying.
