Dear Fellow Jeepers, My friend Steve is a High School Shop teacher and an M Jeep guy, while restoring his M-38 he needed replacement drain plugs and found no source, so as a class project a couple of his students wrote a CNC program and they made a set, then added rare earth magnets. Anyway they decided to make a bunch and sell them, Steve asked me to post this on the page and offer them to the 2A guys, this is helping out a few kids who needed a project as well as a small lesson in marketing. These are the M-38 style plug with the 3/8" square drive socket head but work fine on a CJ as well (I have a set in Dads Jeep)The magnets are wicked strong as well. They are selling for $10 each, and they also made a yoke tool for holding the axel yokes to remove the nut and those are $15 ea., And a installation tool for installing the pinion seal, not sure on the price of those. Anyway here are a few photo's....









If you would like to order a set or a tool, Steve can be reached via E-Mail at spejeep@gmail.com (He has PayPal)

Several members here have installed them and were very happy with the plugs and the tools

Many Thanks, Lee

Me too. Best magnet out there. If you have overdrive or expensive low 18 gear sets, they are great insurance to keep metal out of your thrust bearings and needle bearings. Especially overdrive. If you have ever re-built your gear boxes, you know this is needed. Wink  Oilly

Transmission, transfer case, front and rear axle drain and fill, steering knuckles--are all 8 of these the same?
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable
