Default Re: Unusual oil pan plug

I drop a button magnet into the sump plug on all of my As. There is another on both the diff and gearbox drain plugs and yet another on the Mitchell drain plug. That's 4 on each car. They collect very little except the one in the sump and that is nearly all fine particles of cast iron from the bores. I figure it is much better stuck tot he magnet than circulating through the bearings etc
