That is a Yes answer ??? I have seen them flush, and just "above flush" or a thread or so high. The first one I had; the plug was a square nut type, and the one I have now is the square "inny" as opposed to the nut. If it isn't leaking, it is OK. Don't over tighten it either, they are some times a bare to back out.
Thanks George. The reason I asked was I took mine out on level ground and a few ounces poured out of it. So when I rushed to get it back in I didn't remember if it was flush or not. I haven't ridding it ( a little to cold for us ) yet but I but I do find in a day or two a very slight moisture around the bottom of the tread. Mine is an inner allen hex. I am assuming there is still to much in there and that is why I am seeing this. Would you agree with that theory. Or just take it off again and wrap some teflon tape over the treads? What do you think.
It should be just oozing out over the threads a tiny bit, but what you have is good or right. Rear end oil seems to be like airplane oil, one drop looks like a gallon :shock:
Keep an eye on it to see if it reseals, or give it another tug to see if it is tight. I know that on an Auto I have found them finger tight :?: :!: and not be leaking. I wipe mind down a dozen times, and it still looks wet.....
