    Oil plug size on '12 242 LS?, Mar 16, 2014
  1. tdonoughue

    I have not yet heard of any one doing that. I guess you would have to move to a hill, let out the oil, then move it to level the engines to refill. For my money, I will just suck it out.

    I don't know what size it is, but you could spend $2.07 at #partspak for part
    And measure it.

    How do you plan to plug the hose you then have sitting in the bilge? Probably don't want the residual drippings from the hose in there...

    Super simple to install. Four holes drilled and bolt them in. And they make getting in from the front #ladder SO much easier. I don't know why I didn't do this earlier.

    They are Yamaha part F1U-U270B-01. Same as go on the sides of the boat They don't come with hardware, just the bolt part sticking down from the bottom. I went shopping in the garage and found washers, split rings and nuts that fit nicely.

    I got mine from #PartsPak.com. About $32 each, if memory serves.

    Don't know why I didn't do this sooner...
