Is anyone using or recommend a premium magnetic oil drain plug for our rigs? I keep seeing plenty for the Transmission oil drain but nor for the motor oil drain plug... exploring options...

If our block is aluminum the magnet won't matter..?

The wear parts in the engine are mainly non magnetic materials. The engine wear concern would be the bearing material. For the gear box and differential magnetic plugs are useful since those wear components are magnetic.
