    Default how do you guys change your oil?

    last time i went out i had a bad gasket and have water in the oil. so after i replace the gasket i want to drain the oil, but i tried already and it has that hose that comes from under the oil pan and out the plug hole but it just drips out. should i just let it do that over night or something? i have dual oil filters so i will replace those but how do i make sure i get all or most of the oil out so i dont have to change the oil twice?

    plastic bucket, mount 12v electric pump on top, line hooks to your drain line...sucks the oil out really nice and quick. A few of the marine sites sell this rig all ready to go

    I use a cheap fuel pump, Like the ones they sell for vws. Hook up the pump to the oil drain line and in about 30 min it will be good to go. The pump does not like pumping my 50 wt but it does. Otherwise, you just pull the drain hose out through the drain plug hole and let it sit at least overnight but probably for a day or 2 just to make sure. You may have to change it again to get all the water out. Make sure to run it to try to evaporate some of the water and to make suer to flush out all areas of the motor.

    Holley Red. It seems to work much better as an oil pump than it did for fuel.....
    I also use it if I ever need to drain my fuel tanks for whatever. Very handy thing to have. Just cut on a couple battery clips and plumbed it with -8 AN fittings on input and output. Various fittings/adapters for whatever I'm using it for at the time.

    Since I have a lube shop, it is easy. Hook up the suction hose and in 10 minutes I am refilling the engine

    Pump style oil extractor. If the oil is warm (summer time weather hot not just ran the motor hot) I can do 5 quarts in about 10 minutes. $65 on overtons.com

    I usually just let mine sit overnight and be patient. That hand pump idea I might have to try though, hmmmm

    Pour a gallon or half a gallon of diesel in it. That will break the milk shake up a little bit and thin it enough to let it flow better. Diesil makes a good solvent but it and has a nice oily base.

    When my boat sank there was lots of water and stuff in the motor. I put diesel in it and turned it by hand to splash the crank around in it. Worked great and I have clean oil.

    shurflo pump mounted on enclosed bucket. been using it for over 14 years - had to replace the impeller twice. my cruiser had a braided hose on the drain hole - leaked - it's no longer there. i just pump out of the dipstick tube. it works fine on both my boats, but it'll pump the oil out much quicker if the oil is warm.

    Best money I ever spent on a oil extractor "tool", Oil change in 15 minutes (about 300 bucks)
