Default Oil drain plug torque

Searched the forums but cannot seem to find an answer.

What is the recommended torque value for an 0-320 oil drain plug?

Cheers, Tom

Hi Mickey,
I have that chart but Im having difficulty deciphering the last line. What does
1-11-1/2NPT mean?
Perhaps I need more coffee this morning.

Cheers, Tom

Default Ya had me going . . . . :-)

It is funny isn't it. It is a 1" NPT, with 11.5 threads per inch.
