Mine seemed to tighten up so the drain spout is facing the motor. I added a couple copper washers (couldn't find fiber washers similar to those that came with the kit at the local auto parts store) so I was able to have the drain port face down. I have a slow leak at what seems to be the washers. Anyone have the same issue with the spout not lining up after tightening the Fumoto up? How did you solve it? Do you think my use of washers made of different materials is causing the slow leak?

I wish I just stuck with my old drain plug as it never leaked on me.

I think they offered to exchange my valve for the 106SX. I was afraid getting this more complex valve was asking for additional issues. I might reconsider now. I guess you don't need the extension as the nipple portion does not have to turn (and hit the oil pan.)

Been using my Fumoto now for over 275,000 miles. Garage floor is clean and it means that petcock has been opened and closed 55 times. Glad I threw the drain plug and crush washer away years ago.

I recommend the 106SX. Left image is of my G1 and the right is my Odyssey (Similar to the G2 Ridgeline, G3 Pilot, G2 Passport, etc).

I do not have the adapter, as you do not need one.
