Oil drain fitting size on AX291 engine?

I'm considering ordering a Drainzit hose to fit my Deluxe 28 921037 with the AX291 engine. The factory drain is a hex standoff plugged with an 8.8 metric bolt.

Can anyone tell me what the thread size is for the block side of the standoff? Better yet, can someone tell me which Drainzit part number will fit this engine?

TIA

the 8.8 is the grade of the metric bolt. I think that uses the same as Honda which would be the 10mm.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

I used my tap / die set to figure it out on my engine with the plug removed I just matched it up.

The meltdown is under way ...

If anyone finds out for sure, which Drainzit, please post. I'm looking for one that fits the 254cc. I would think it would be the same as the 291cc.

Well,to elaborate, I matched the tap with the threads on the removed plug, or you can use a die with the plug see if it threads on easy. I don't use the tap on the engine as that will create chips. My original wording was lousy.
