Oil Drain Plug question
I was performing my first oil/filter change on my DL1000 today when I ran into a snag. I decided to use my new torque wrench to tighten the the drain plug bolt to 16.5 lb/ft. The angle I was holding the wrench combined with my inexperience of the tool, I way overtightened it to the point it stripped and loosened up:mad:. There wasn't a crush washer attached when I removed the bolt, just a small washer that was the same diameter as the bolt. Thin pieces of metal were stuck into the threads, and when removed, it didn't make any difference.
I ordered a new drain plug bolt and crush washer from my Zuk dealer and hope I didn't do permanent damage to the threads inside the oil pan. Any advice/reassurance is appreciated.
