It probably reduced the amount of brass by a few grams, saving a few pence, and making an Austin bean-counter a hero.

Our '56 BN2 has the hex bolt type, my '67 BJ8--built in late '66--has the slotted monstrosity. That should narrow it down a bit.

Does anyone know when the hex bolt type brass drain plug per the BN1 changed over to the big flat slotted monstrosity? 

A more pertinent question might be why the swap?
