Overview

LOCK OPEN OIL DRAIN VALVES
Changing hot engine oil has never been easier! With the SAF-AIR oil drain valve, no wrench is needed to remove the drain plug. A simple push and turn of the SAF-AIR valve locks it in the open position. The valve is made completely from anodized aluminum and stainless steel components. These materials are used throughout the aircraft industry due to their strength and durability. FAA & PMA APPROVED.

Product Notes:
  1. NEVER fly the aircraft with the drain hose attached to the oil drain valve.
  2. Make sure that your landing gear will not activate the oil drain valve when you retract the gear inside the fuselage.
  3. Remember, the valve may fit on your engine, but it is your responsibility to make sure that the valve will work with your application.

Reviews

Super easy to install. Crush washer included along with a small packet of anti seize. Design has two rubber gaskets. They seem easy enough to replace when they wear out. Design has holes for safety wires. .032 is too thick so get the .025.

Nice built unit. Cessna 182P required spacer between throttle attachment to carburetor throttle arm to keep throttle cable from hitting lower part of oil drain tube at full throttle.

As has been pointed out by others, the crush gasket is loose on the threaded shaft, due to the threads no contiuing to the gasket contact surface, thus the gasket has no means of being centered when installed, increasing the likelihood of leakage. Otherwise, quality seems fine.

Fit my C150 with O-200 perfectly. FYI, it did come with a copper gasket, so I did have to buy one to install it after all. Also come with anti-seize compound.

Installed, but untested at this point. Anticipate much easier oil change in the future for my Cessna 150.

Q: What size tubing is needed to go from the S6250 drain valve to catch bucket?

It uses a 3/8" hose.

Q: I just purchased this item but I could not find the torque required to install this valve. What is the torque required to install this valve?

Per the manufacturer, we do not have a torque value. We recommend seating the crush washer and then a 1/4 turn. Do not over tighten.
