MD 35 diesel perkins. 1964 deluxe. What are my options to replacing the original oil drain plug with something else that is not the lowest point on the tractor. I would hate to knock this off only to run it dry without knowing.
This is the original type of plug as per Agco parts manual online for my serial number.

The hex-headed transmission drain plug 884 691M1 and washer 180 474M1 should be suitable. The depth of the head is only about 3/8" max.

If the sump, oil pan thread is tapered you should be able to tap it to parallel. You may find that it is worn and a parallel plug will fit satisfactorily.

I would not use brass, it would be weak. UP ahead in front, you could mount a brush-catcher, or a bumper, or some sort of larger steel thing to intercept brush and limbs and stuff, before it hits the drain.

You could lower the risk by replacing the plug with a hex head brass plug, but the drain needs to be at the low point.
