They were not magnetic. It was a standard pipe plug with a 9/16 square head. Positive Traction rear ends got a different plug that had a red plastic tag on it. Also not magnetic.

Not sure you are interested, but you CAN get a magnetic fill plug that looks like the original plug. Probably wouldn't catch much, but mine usually has a few little metal fuzzies on it when I pull the plug out.

Freddie is exactly correct. Plus, the fill plug for a posi rear also has a shoulder on it for the red plastic tag. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of a posi fill plug with the shoulder for the red tag.


BUUUUUUUUUT, on ALL my rearends, I add a magnetic drain plug. TOO EASY to do!
