Looks like the fram sure drain. I've had a few on my vehicles in the past and absolutely loved it. Easy and quick to drain, and mostly what I like compared to the fumoto is the o-ring seal cap. The cap is a little extra insurance in case of valve leak. Had mine for years now with no issues.

Which ever one you choose to get, it will really make life easer when changing your own oil. After the first time, with oil everywhere, I needed something like this to change oil. Trying to balance the drain pan on the axle and tie rod cross shaft, while unscrewing a hot pan plug, then having the oil go over the edge of the drain pan. GRRRR! Now, start draining oil, break filter loose, grease front end, change filter, button up pan, fill with oil. Dead Bang.

Fumoto makes a lot of different drains, depending on the thread, the nipple length (if any) and whether the nipple is removable or not.

Go to Fumoto for a complete list of all drains. You need to find your engine in their list, or know for sure the thread that the plug uses.

Fumoto® USA | Quick and Easy Engine Oil Drain Valves

Size Chart | Fumoto® Engine Oil Drain Valves

You also need to have a plug that doesn't point down where a drain will get knocked off if you hit something in the road. My View has the plug on the side of the pan, so it was perfectly suited to this drain.

There is a second part to your drain - mine is a clear-green hose with a brass tip. Unscrew the cap on the drain plug and screw in the hose which depresses the drain valve and allows the oil to flow. Neat but expensive system - I don't spill a drop. Sure beats a hot drain plug followed by a cascade of hot oil. If you can't find the other half with the hose, then remove the hole thing and replace with a Fumoto.
Bob, do you remember which model you ordered?

Thanks, Brian
