    Any luck finding New Drain plugs for the Trans/Primary ? Here is a nice one for the engine sump drain . I will need this if I go to a 2 into 1 exhaust or if I had the one piece cat from a Euro4 . I am not dropping the exhaust just for a oil change !

    The trick is to look for hydraulic blanking plugs. The one you want is M10x1 thread size.
    Many sources from any hydraulic suppliers. Took a lot of searching but I then found many local suppliers at little cost.
    For example by Parker part no. VST110XIEDCF from RS stock no. 8711-2253at £2.98 on quick search. I have bags of them even cheaper exactly as original fitted that come with seal for even less and similarly 14mm ones for engine sump.

    The Dimple is the long one with the large Hex head . 12mm long with a 17mm head . I also found the middle with a small 10mm hex head in stainless but no magnet. Norton at bottom . I will check fitment issues with the Dimple and post what I find.
