    Can anyone help me out?
    I have one of the Toyo sports square oil catch can and have managed to drop and loose the drain plug whilst emptying it.
    I have tried to buy another one from Toyo but had no luck.

    Does anyone else have a Toyo catch can and can get me the size and pitch of the thread on their plug so I can find a replacement.
    Or better still does anyone have anything suitable they would sell me?

    Thanks 👍

    For the sake of the £25 quid they are it's probably easier to buy a new one lol I live a few mile from toyo sport so use them a lot and I know they generally don't sell just one part annoying really

    It's only been on about 8 weeks so don't want to buy another really
    Rather just get a bolt to fit.
    If I were to change it I wouldn't get another Toyo

    Yeah. I got a short sharp NO.
    They won't give me size or sell one separately.

    Yeah mate. I got the distinct impression that they just don't care LOL.
    They have had my money so I can go and do one now. I won't be using them again for anything.

    Having gone to the warehouse that they sell from I am not surprised they don't bother with after sales support - just a constant stream of guys packing parcels and another crew on their PC's processing orders.

    But anyway - all you need to do is remove the catch can and go to your local hardware store (or B&Q if you are desperate) and try a bolt until one fits - must be a standard size M6/M8???

    Ok finally got to sort it.
    They are 10mm fine thread (1mm pitch)

    B&Q don't sell em though. Had to eBay one.
