No draip plug, remove cover let oil go everywhere, or use a suction gun.

the hole in the belly pan is roughly an inch in diameter and there is no plug for it. I have never had any problems with snow coming in.

There is a drain plug in my chaincase. I don't have a plug on my bellypan either. Don't knpw if there was one there when it was new.

ok, cool, thanks guys. I am about to drill a hole for the new chaincase (with drain plug) and was just wondering if there was a bellypan plug and i should size it appropriately.

You could probably use one similar to what they use on the belly pan for the clutch bolt.

There is no plug in the hole, because where the hole is, the belly pan it tight to the chaincase. If you are drilling a hole somewhere else, you may want a plug, or just a smaller hole. I have about a 1/4 inch hole drilled in mine. But it is still a slobbering mess.

what do you mean slobering mess, it still gets into the bellyan? I just drilled the hole on the weekend. I only had a 7/8 and 1 1/8 hole saws (the plug is 3/4 if i recall), so i went with 1 1/8 so there is a bit of buffer around the plug for dripping. Haven't tested yet but i figure it should work good as it looks good from underneath.

eddiejr, you must have installed a chaincase with a plug or installed a drain plug in your existing ca?? I drilled my hole beside the chaincase, in a low spot in the pan. When I say mess, I mean when I pop my cover it doesn't just drain out the hole--it still flows all over the pan. If you have a 7/8 hole, under the plug, it should be clean. But if you still have to pop the cover, it will be a mess.

They didn't come with a plug, The drain is almost flush with the inside of the belly pan. No need to turn on it's side either. Pull plug, let drain. Put it back in, fill up.
