what size is the sump plug?

Recommended Posts

I read it was 19mm but mine is smaller than that? is it 18mm or is it an imperial size or different i.e AF, Whitworth? it's a 1988 stevens. I dont want to round the bugger off.

Chris it is meant to be 19mm. The plug should have a plastic/rubber washer behind it. It may have been modded? You could try spacing it out by putting a thin rag over the bolt and put spanner over it to fill out the gap if theres nothing in it?? Ive had to do this on other parts of the car. Hope you figure it out and dont round off the bolt <_<

nope mine is 18mm but it is so bloody tight, i don't want to risk rounding it off. I'm not sure if the washer is on it as there is an indent in the casing. might have to take it to a garage.

It is definitely an 18mm hex.
