From what I can see, using a magnetic drain plug on a crankcase has nothing but an up side.

I know - not original, but invisible to the jeep police.

Anybody using one on your Go Devil?

They actually hold fast without the JB goo. Just made me feel better to use it.

I got little round magnets from Harbor Freight, epoxy glued them to the plug. I first checked clearances when I had the Oil Pan off. I'm happy with the results. I did the same thing years ago on my volkswagon bug.
