    I think the torque spec on my old ranger was 10-12 ft lb. I always use a torque wrench because I have a bad habit of over tightening fasteners. Definitely do not over tighten these things! What seems like a little now will turn into a nightmare getting them out later. I striped the fill plug allen head on the old ranger and it was a half a day project getting it out. When it finally did break loose, it made a nice louder than normal “crack” sound to let me know I had over torqued it... oops.
    I also jacked mine up for better access, but also so it was more level. The ranger rear end sagged so bad that when it was level, it would take at least another pint of fluid.

    Nice video!

    I should use a torque wrench, but am still doing it by feel. I have stripped the threads out of the drain plug on one of our old 800s, but in 2500 hours that's like 30 oil changes!

    My nightmare has always been that the drain plug doesn't get tight enough and I lose all the oil. That has never happened, but might be part of the reason I get them a little overtight. I wish they had steel thread inserts from the factory.

    Good information Adam. I might add I always put my plugs back with some anti seize grease on the threads. I do use a torque wrench to set mine and others i work on. I have had my share of removing stripped out plugs and they are no fun.

    Good advice Ken, The antiseize really does help. I think the Orings stick as much as anything, and anything to help stuff break free is a plus in my book.

    Are you sure you shouldn't turn it upside down and shake the trany fluid out?
