Evening everyone,

anyone who's ever changed the oil on a 406 or similar will know what a pain it is with the tie bar being inn the way! so as we service quite a few mogs I decided to do something about it and created this drain tray to eliminate the problem!

I have no  idea if that video will work, if not let me know and i'll upload it to youtube I've started using my google drive to store images and videos and for some reason I cant make it public!

Cheers, Brian

Genius!  I have the forestry plate on my 406 and it makes it a pain to change the oil.

Great job!

What a great idea!! time for something similar on my mog as that makes it so much of an easier job.
New challenges every month, but driving one cannot be beaten.

It certainly makes life easier, and it can be used on a few chassis :) If anyone wants me to make them one let me know, but it's not a bad job to do yourself if you have the tools :)
