AX306 Drain Plug Thread Size?

Hello,

Does anyone happen to know the thread size on the drain plug used on the AX306 engine?

The link below shows the drain plug on the drain tube (#55 in the diagram) behind the engine, but LCT does not list the thread size.

Thanks!

I am pretty sure it is 12mm X 1.5mm thread pitch.

Thank you, but I think you guys are talking about the thread for the bolt shown in the diagram as #49. My engine has the drain in the back (#55) instead of on the sides and they used a cap to block it off. I know for sure it isn't a 10 or 12 mm as that's too small.

Thanks!

From the diagram, the back mounted oil drain with a cap does not show a sealing washer. I would assume it is a tapered pipe thread.

Otherwise, Based on this information it is listed as a m12 x 1.5 thread. I hope this helps!

Vento it could very much be a 12mm bolt size but for the life of me why don't you try to call LCT and hear from the horses mouth and share the findings with us. Thank You and Good Luck

When it's time to drain the oil take it off and bring it with you to a hardware or big box store and try some fittings. From the parts diagram it would appear to be a pipe thread and it's NLA on Ariens site.

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
