What is the size of a 2005 V215 black scorpion mercuiser oil plug?

I was thinking of installing an oil drain kit. Oil Drain Kit - 1/2" x 20 thread size

this one I found on amazon for $29.99 by MPI

I am pretty sure the pan has a metric thread. Most newer engines do. You can find an oil drain kit with a metric thread at just search for part number 511009. The cost is $24.58. I know this kit fits Indmar oil pans after 1993 I believe so it should fit on a MerCruiser.

Dave, I tried this. It didn't work. There is barely enough clearance between the hull and pan/plug. It is a nightmare install. Also the hose on those kits is too short to get out the bilge drain. You would need to lengthen the hose. If you did it might work. After a few hours and scaring myself by twisting the brass fitting too hard to get it to point rearward (I thought I stripped the plug threads at first), I quit and bought a Pela oil extractor which works great.

Good call Derek. I was going to say something about not enough space to fit it but I was not totally sure. You can get longer hoses for them I think they come in 40 and 60" lengths.

I wouldn't bother wasting the time or money. Just suck it out the dipstick tube on Merccruiser's and foget about it.
