    does anyone know the size tool that is used for the motor oil drain plug on a 360? there are 2 plugs to drain from and both are different sizes. I have done it before but the person I borrowed the tools from is not around anymore.
    thanks in advance.

    12mm for engine sump. 14mm for oil tank drain.

    Measure what you take out, and fill it back up with a bit less initially. It's so very common for the 360's to be overfilled, causing the inlet system to be filled by the breathers........

    Finalise the level with oil temp at 80 degrees centigrade. Check it within 30 seconds of switching off the engine.

    Make sure you do not overfill otherwise you will lay quite a smoke screen.
