    I have a hose coming off the pan and use a drill bit pump to pump it out.

    We use a hand drill on the oil pump drive and a hose on the block outlet. It takes just a minute or so.

    I use a shop vac, turn it on, hold it by the drain plug, unscrew plug, if it sucks the plug out of your fingers use a magnet to get it out of the bucket, I have done this many times and it does not get a drip of oil in the bilge
    get blown or get blown away

    Good idea. I've got an el-cheapo wet/dry vac that's perfect for that.

    That would be suck:





    It's a little utility pump from Sears I warm up the oil so it's 125* and it flows much better. I like Slow Burns way that sounds good.

    I have a drain hose (specifically designed for this) that screws in where the drain plug goes. It stays there permanently. Warm up the motor, push the hose throught the drain hol in the transom and take out the plug in the hose. Oil runs right out using gravity.

    Who changes oil? I just keep adding so its always new...

    I do like slow burn, but i need to pull the dizzy out and then just put the hose on the oil gally plug and let er rip. Takes about three minutes.

    I use one of those oil suckers I ordered from Overtons. Pump it about ten times and it sucks all ten quarts straight out the dipstick tube. Works great no mess. I even started using it on my car and truck.

    bought some 12v utility pump that was ment for oil, gas, etc from ebay for like 20 bucks. Works pretty good, it has garden hose fittings on both ends so i just converted it down to a small nylon hose. I stick the nylon hose into the dip stick hole and run the pump.
