Then you didn't get the right size reducer. 1/2" NPT is 1/2" NPT, as well as 1/4". Ports are 1/2", so you get a 1/2" x 1/4" Reducing bushing, then put the drain cock in.

no i got the right size reducer...1/2 male end to go into the tank and 1/4 female for the drain cock...the problem is that the drain is to big...if i have the tank mounted in my bed there is like 1/2 clearance between the port and bed floor and the drain plug and reducer are a inch...those arent the real numbers but you should get what im saying...ill take pics if you guys still dont understand

i got one from home depot and it barely fits. it leaks though so i'm got a new one from larry. i haven't put it on yet but it looks shorter. i would go compare it but its late and cold out. its still 1/4" thought so you still need the bushing on there. i don't know what else you can do beside find a short drain cock or space up the tank.
