Oil Drain Valve

Has anyone installed and used one of these? I'm about to push the purchase button. Pretty sure this specific one is the correct fitment.

I've decided to do it, just need to confirm fitment on my Cummins 6.7 340hp Legacy. Looking forward to a more controlled and cleaner oil draining.

If you have the factory oil pan than yes it will fit. I am using one on my 6.7L in my 2008 Ram Mega Cab. I purchased my valve from Geno's garage. They sell the 18mm valve for $21.95. Geno's part number is FTV-104A; this will fit all model years from 2002 to 2016.

I'm not sure if my Legacy motor home uses the same oil pan as that on the RAM pick up. The fumoto website shows an 18m and a 22m for the 6.7 Cummins.

The 22mm drain valve is for the older 5.9L engine built between 1994 and 2001; per Geno's Garage.

If the engine is painted red and the oil pan is painted red too than you have the same oil pan as the Ram trucks.

I was on a factory tour with Turbo Diesel Register in 2013, to the CMEP plant in Columbus IN were the 6.7L engine are built. All 6.7L Engines are built on the same line, the only difference is that the OEM engines for motor homes are painted Red. The engines for the RAM trucks are not painted but Clear Coated instead. The biggest difference is the software that is loaded into the ECM that controls the fuel input and other parameters.

I've had a Fumoto on my Duramax for 10 years now with absolutely no trouble. Only thing is that with a significantly smaller opening than pulling a drain plug you really need to warm up the oil before opening the valve... 10 qts of cold 15w40 takes forever to drain.
