Q:Will this fit an 1986 5.7 Mercruiser 260? It's on a 86 cobalt condurre 223, so my next question is will it fit thru the drain hole as it isn't standard 1" rubber plug but it is a 1/2 npt fitting unlike previous boats I've owned. Thx!Asked on 8/3/2015 by Jose from United States
The manufacturers specs indicate that this oil drain kit will fit on the Standard Chevy 1996 and prior engines. They could not tell me if it would fit thru your drain hole but it is designed to fit through most drain holes.

Q:Is that half inch the maximum diameter of the brass cap end?
Hard to believe that with a wrench hex (flats) and with the crimped fitting as well that the diameter is only one half inch.Asked on 10/6/2009 by Bodacious4u from Great White North
A:No, the thread is 1/2 inch in diameter x 20.Answered on 10/9/2009 by Bryant C from Tech Department
Q:What is the diameter of the hose end (Brass) so I can measure my drain hole before ordering. Thank you.Asked on 9/16/2009 by Portagedreams from Port Clinton, Ohio
A:1/2 inch.Answered on 9/18/2009 by Bryant C from Tech Department
A:Be advised that 1/2" is the diameter of the threaded connection, NOT the diameter of the brass coupling that you would want to run through your bilge drain hole to drain the oil while on a trailer. The actual diameter of the crimped brass is over 3/4". I'm returning mine for this reason - can't fit the oil drain hose though my 3/4" drain plug in the stern.Answered on 10/5/2011 by TEC from Maple Grove, MN
Q:What is the method for opening the far end when draining the oil?Asked on 8/26/2009 by daviddwood from Grass Valley, CA
