    I got mine off amazon and installed it today. Get the F-103N the 'N' is for nipple. it allows you to add a hose on the valve for easier draining.

    I was going to get them off of amazon as well. Oildrainvalve.com had the springs and little rubber covers for damn cheap. Plus the price is the same with the discount.

    I've been using them for years.
    I got the F-103. No need for the nipple since I don't have a skid plate, and it provides a little more clearance.

    I had one on my Duramax and Suburban, but the wife's Rav-4 got a Fram Sure-Drain, which is much lower profile (her pan is literally 6" off the ground).
    The drain is on the bottom of the Tacoma pan, but it's tucked up behind the front crossmember so there is no risk of the valve getting hit.

    They do drain a little slow, but it's not a big deal. Just slide a pan under and open the valve, then go around and check your inflation, fluids, air filter, clean up the engine compartment, etc....

    I ordered two valves, 5 clips, and 10 caps. The shipping was free but I couldn't use the code. So I upgraded the shipping and was able to use the code which made the shipping free again and took some additional cash off of the top of the order.

    I would run the valve on my 240sx but it is going to be pretty low to the ground and I don't want to take the chance.

    Fram Sure-Drain will handle that.
    It's only a little taller than the stock bolt.
    Drawback is it's a two-piece item... you unscrew the dust cap/seal, and screw in a fitting that has a "V" wire on it, which opens the valve.

    Haven't seen them in stores for a while, but they are still available online.
