Yes sir. Aircraft spruce has one for it. It includes the adapter to drain the oil and a cap to cover when not draining. I think it was about 160. It is specific to the plane so that the gear does not cause it to drain. Many planes have gone down due to incorrect ones.
Hope that helps

Thanks Tod
I have the quick drain already installed. I need the adaptor to open the quick drain to drain the oil.

New one on me. Never seen a quick drain that didn't just work with your hands.

The clearance on the bottom of the engine on an Arrow is so tight that the standard push and turn quick drain won’t fit. They use a drain that only sticks out about an inch. It has external threads for an adapter that screws on and pushes the drain open. The hose attaches to the adapter. I don’t know if Spruce sells just the adapter. I would call.
