Exclamation Fumoto Drain Valve Group Buy

Hey guys! After talking with a couple people over at the TundraSolutions board, it seems many people would be interested in a group buy for a F-103 or an F-103N Fumoto Drain valve. Yoshi at quickoildrainvalve, a direct distributor of Fumoto's, hooked us up (see Post #28 below). Keep in mind that F-103's fit a large cohort of Toyota vehicles (especially the new models).

The F-103 is on the right, the F-103N is on the left:

Put me in for 2, 1(F103N) and 1(F103). I was going to buy one for my corolla as well. Hopefully, this will happen soon...I was going to purchase mine within the next few weeks.

Please explain for the uneducated why you would want a fast opening valve on your oil system?

damn! just installed mine today and switched to full synthetic (Mobil 1 5w-30).

well worth the money, I even bought the little clip for extra security on the valve lever, can't wait to change the oil again!

It's not a fast opening valve, it saves the mess of undoing the drain bolt everytime to change the oil, all you do is flick the lever to drain the oil. It actually drains slower than draining the oil the old fashioned way.

does the 103N hang really low like the other one does? from what I've seen it sits lower than the crossmember, so it could easily get hung up on a rock and there goes your oil

What exactly qualifies your truck as a rig?

Good point. Think I'd be more inclined if we had a side drain.

Whats the purpose of a group buy? its not that expensive of an item and it easy to buy on your own.
