Mixed up drain plugs

Postby robtjm » Thu Mar 10, 2016 3:29 pm

I drained the oil from the engine and transmission of my '07 Patrol, and managed to mix up the two drain plugs. Can anyone tell which is for the engine and which is for the transmission? Photo attached. Thanks.

My photo of the two drain plugs doesn't appear to have posted in my original inquiry.

The one with the longer magnet may be an aftermarket unit. FWIW, on mine the transmission fill and rear end tend to pick up the most fuzz once everything was broken in.
past afflictions include TR motocars and bikes, R60/2 & a R65, MGs, and a Citroen.

Thread tape.
Still like Charlie Chaplin's 1940 talkie "The Great Dictator"; had to abandon it as the inspiration for the theme of my Ural's paint scheme. People can't seem to tell satire from support. Too much public education.

I put a nitrile O ring on all my plugs - no leaks.
