Not looking for a debate on right or wrong... I have my reasons

I know the pitch is m12x1.25 but I need the proper mm depth so as to not block anything that should be blocked.
 
If I’m a betting man, I’d assume that the part number provided in this thread means it’s a 12mm long plug: 6bolt oil squirter delete

You may also consider M12 x 1.25 oil drain plugs available from your local auto parts or hardware store, which come in as short as 12mm lengths. A quick Google search shows Dorman 090-038 ought to be about right, lengthwise. What I don’t know is whether the heads for a regular hex cap screw interferes with anything in the rotating assembly. From that standpoint, it may be safer to go with something like the option in the link above.
 
Do you want the same length as a squirted valve or shorter?
 
They would be shorter... i found the perfect ones.. even came with crush washers... so generous red loctite and good to go!

Want to provide what length you ended up with, part numbers and where you got them from? That would wrap this thread up!
