fumoto drain valve

anyone ever had an issue with theres? I really think mine is leaking. I have had it for about 6 months now and have pulled it twice to put new copper gasket and still dripping. Really driving me crazy and messing up the driveway. You guys think one could be faulty? I have it tight in the pan and seems to be comeing from spout and not around gasket.

So the internal ball valve isn't sealing? Hmm, just put mine in last week, hope it doesn't start to leak.

Keep us updated.

mine's been installed about 3 years now without leaking a drop... sounds like you may have a bad one

Ive had mine for about 8 months now with out a drop of oil ever coming from it. Sounds to me like you got a bad one. If they do say your SOL at least its only a 25 dollar part and not a 125 dollar part.

Curious what you find.... I JUST bought one that I haven't installed yet, waiting for my next Blackstone "date" to install it.

Next project is to clean/sand/grind down the oil pan and paint it. Hopefully it will last a while... dang salt.

As I remember it was not a copper washer but some other sort of material.
