Default Drain plug for large clean-out pan

Does anyone make a repro of the drain plug for the large clean-out style oil pans? Can someone tell me the size?
If anyone has a spare to sell, please contact me.
Thank you, Joe

Joe - just curious - this is the oil drain on my 35 Coupe that has a 59A with a two piece truck pan - is this what yo are refering to?

I have the two pic truck pan as well, but my plug looks a bit different and I have the removable oval clean out. I just tried to remove the plug and it is stuck and I can't quite get my caliper on the inside to measure the dia, but it seems to be around 1.75" OD on the threads.

They often appear on ebay, e.g., https://www.ebay.com/itm/Oil-Pan-Dra...IAAOSwBLlVOV-S.

You're absolutely right.I should have looked closer.I wonder if that is the one that has the recess and not flat top like in my picture.

My plug is recessed. I checked the dia again with my caliper and it is 1.5". It has been acting up on me.

Hi Peter! The pan I'm referring to, I believe, is an 8BA truck pan which has the large clean-out hole in the bottom. Thanks Joe

Can you measure the diameter of the plug opening? Should be 3/4, 7/8 or 1 1/2.

The pan is at a shop being modified for main bearing cap supports. I'll contact them and ask them to check it for me.
Thank you
