17MM , why the heck is it so hard to find...
So I got my 2 quarts of Royal Purple SynchroMax fluid for the NV3550. I read I needed a 17MM Hex bit for both the drain AND fill plug. Out of the 3 autoparts stores my town has (Autozone,Oriellys, and Napa) not one of them had this bit in stock and on the shelves. Turns out only NAPA could order it for me.
Needless to say $19.48 later I obtained the part through them, should be here on Monday. Why is this such a specialty bit? I know it's a good size allen, but still! I went to 2 local hardware stores as well, the biggest size everyone carried was a 10mm -.-
Just thought i'd vent!
P.S- Any tips for re-routing the oil when draining it so it doesnt puddle up on the skid plate? I really don't want to take it off.
