ON the newer trucks they changed the 6mm plug to a cap, heard that alot of the plugs where getting striped out(that would just ******) can the cap be ordered to fit in place of the plug. since this is a basic service job all owners must do. also how often are most of you doing a drain off.

Draining the HFCM

Does anyone know of an aftermarket plug or "quick change" fitting for the HFCM drain plug? I can just see me a 100 miles from home, with a suit & tie on under the truck trying to drain water out of the unit. What was the thinking of taking such a simple task and making it so difficult?

Thanks,

i believe it is a 6mm hex wrench that is needed. only about a half pint or so of fuel comes out.

Thanks for the info. I looked for a while for a non-existent lever.
