Its definitely the washer for the drain plug huh?as an ex heavy equip mechanic,i could pull that plug with one hand,put the gasket on with the other hand and put the plug back in and probably lose about a teaspoon of oil,im absolutely certain that you can too,challenge yourself,its fun!!!!!!(dont forget to put your finger over the drain hole while your putting the gasket back on the plug)
I know it is old huh, I just did a google search and brought me here, so I figured I would revive the thread with my stupidity.Yes...take the bolt out and get that washer on there. Just have a buddy put their finger over the drain hole till ya get the plug back in. You'ld be surprised what people do for beer.
I don't know cuz i don't have a 900, but my 99 Nomad has over 52,000 miles on it...I never replaced the washer...and I don't tighten the oil plug too much...just nice and snug. WOW THIS THREAD IS OLD!!!
I did it!!!!Don't beat yourself up too much...so what...just put the washer back...twas an honest mistake...not stupidity. At least it can easily be overcome. Good luck...:beer:
I just looked it up in my records...my 99 Nomad has over 56,000. I don't know what I was thinking when I said 52,000. Just wanted to clarify.my 99 Nomad has over 52,000 miles on it...I never replaced the washer...and I don't tighten the oil plug too much...just nice and snug.
Thanks man!!!!we all have screwups,not to worry,you caught it in time and corrected it,no harm no foul,all is well in vulcanland and you probably will be twice as careful the next time,guarantee it!!!!
