What does drain plug thread into?

Just changed my oil (100 mile) and was curious as to what the drain plug screws into. Looks to seal on the case and thread into a brass (?) something inside. I've dug through the maintenance manual and can't seem to pinpoint it.

Reason I ask is I mistakenly torqued the bolt to 29 ft/lbs instead of 29Nm. Hoping I didn't dork something up ops: .

I believe those threads are steel not brass, nobody uses brass threads, too weak. Not to worry as I don't think there is much diff between 29 ft*lbs and Nm but can convert if you want, most manuals show both units and I can't ever remember the stupid metric conversion factors, I hate metric.

I checked 22 = 29, so 29 ft*lbs = 38 Nm, about 30 % more, no biggie. I applaud the fact you even use a T wrench. I don't on drain plugs or filters but I do not hand tighten filters ever. Better too tight than loose. I don't allow it at work either, filter comes loose, dumps oil, $30,000 engine and $100,000 test dead

You'll know if you over tighten it BTW, it will strip and not tighten up and you don't want that trust me.

Thanks for the info. I'll be more careful next time.

I'm weird when it comes to doing stuff to spec. I got tired of breaking things and making a small tasks cost mucho bucks. Ask my wife about the bathroom remodel .

What bathroom, my bikes are in a 100 year old barn where the horses used to live before I kicked them (or was it the other way around ?) out and I just pee on the floor, WTF ? I'll admit to having a strange urge to eat Quaker oats all the time now ???
