    Got a question about removing the drain plug from the flow to swap the fluid. Is it clockwise or counter clockwise. Cause all im doing clockwise is stripping the heck out of it.. Any help would be great.

    I have the same problem. I called boss the the guy I talked to said to apply a little heat. I am a little worried about that, so I am waiting.

    Definately counterclockwise. There's no reason it would be reversed thread. A little heat does wonders.

    The plugs are nothing special, just your run of the mill 3/8 male right hand pipe thread but they do get stuck in there at times making removal very difficult. Use a little heat like the others mentioned and be sure you're turning the correct way.

    Before re-installation add a little thread sealant to the plug. Doing so will keep the threads not only sealed but lubricated for easy removal the next time. And remember it's pipe thread, so no need to crank it in there Hercules tight. Snug is good.
