Yamaha F115 oil plug

7 posts in this topic

I just changed the oil on my 2006 F115 motor for the first time. During the process of taking the oil plug out and trying to catch the oil at the same time I didn't pay attention to the plug and if there is suppose to be a rubber gasket to seal the plug against. The plug had a aluminum flat washer on it. Is this what seals the plug, the manual said to replace the gasket?

Can't speak for that engine particularily, but my car uses a flat metal "crush washer". You need to replace it each time you change the oil. Any auto parts store carries them.

I would assume that is what they mean when they state to replace the gasket.

The flat washer is the seal. I just put the old one back on the last two times. I did use a torque wrench to tighten the nut.

If you are reusing a crush washer that is supposed to be replaced every time, you might use a touch of silicone 'form-a-gasket' on it (just a very light smear on both sides) or some other non-hardening sealant.

I have a 1999 F100 Yamaha and replace the aluminum o-ring every 2nd or 3rd oil change. I always use a torque wrench and have never had a leak.

I better buy some crush washers because I have never replaced any. Just a rough estimate but just on my vehicles alone I must have changed oil around 200 times over the years.

LOL. In my opinion, the 25 cents is cheap peace of mind. A lot of places will just give you one if you ask.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
