Fumoto drain Valve

I am looking at getting a Fumoto drain valve, should you put pipe thread tape on the threads or JB Weld it in the oil pan?

Neither. If I remember correctly, it had a fiber washer or something to that effect included on it to seal it. Mine works great.

No thread sealant or tape needed. I've had mine on four three years now. It does slow down the drain process but letting it warm up before hand and zero drops anywhere else but the drain pan made it worth the extra couple minutes. I got the one with the short nipple too. huge help.

Some have cautioned it could snag on something. If that thing gets snagged/ripped off you're already in huge trouble due to where its located in relation to the steering components, front axel and height etc. Benn through -20 in North Idaho and 115+ in CA and just love the mess free ability now.

+1 on the snag concern. I donít know which nipple you got, I think there was a shorter version available from the one I got, think mine is 1Ē. Regardless, if I did hit that, I too expect I would have bigger problems to address.

I agree with the others, no sealant is needed, however, if you do elect to use it be sure not to use the white Teflon tape as its not rated for use with oil.
I just bought another 7.3 yesterday and am buying Fumoto to go on it. You'll thank yourself every time you crawl underneath it to change the oil.

Fumoto drain Valve

Im sure your way past needing any more info but I've got to get my post count up.

I use FV on my Jeep, mainly to control the mess (complete aftermarket skid system). I love the product. as others have said, don't use sealant, it shouldn't be needed.

I do, and highly recommend that you clean the original drain plug and toss it in your tool/glove box to always have available. in the event that something does happen to the valve, oil is easy to come by, drain plug may not be.

Edit: for pix.
On my Jeep, the value is somewhat vulnerable, so I slapped a piece of scrap over the access hole to protect it a bit more.

I took mine off and went back to regular drain plug. Always seemed like it wanted to slow leak oil. The lever never felt like it wanted to seat and lock in place, there was always a little play in the spring action when locked in place.

I've had mine on since between 2010-2012 and never had an issue. Mine is like the one Hansel posted but does not have the extra security by the valve lever, no nipple either. I will agree that it doesn't drain quite as fast but not a big deal to me. My truck is tall enough that i slide a 5gal bucket under it and slide the lever over....do other things while it's draining. I have no regrets in purchasing. I bought mine for the ease of draining and no mess.

I like mine too. Snag issue is non-existent. If you have something hit the Fumoto, then that will mean that your front axle took a pretty hard hit.
