I haven’t yet done it but need to install a new one to drain the splash well in my lone star I’ve just rebuilt. I was told there was a tool and this appears to be it. I found the 1” brass tube easy enough but no one had any idea about the tool to make the crimped flange on the other end.
Thank you for posting this. Now I know how it’s done , just need to make or find the tool now.
Please let me know or post after on how yours goes.

I was considering doing exactly what you plan on doing on my Aluma Craft FD but I didn't want to pay for the installation tool that I probably would only use one time.

Does anyone have experience with this installation before I attempt it?
My latest addition (Alumacraft FD) had the drain welded up by the PO and I want to reinstall.
