    If have have a Pep boys, Autozone etc around you they usually have the hand pump kind, or you could look for a electric pump unit, but most all parts places have them, even walmart has them.

    might be a little redneck for you but, I use a 5 gallon bucket with a lid, drilled a hole in it and pushed a 3/8" hose in it to the bottom. the hose is long enough to go thru my drain plug at the back of the boat, I connect it to the engine and hook a shop vac to the pour spout on the bucket, it will drain the oil in about 2 minutes.

    On the tunnel, i pull out the dizzy and use the prime tool and put a pipe fitting in an oil journal buy the filter. That gets most of it and pertty fast.

    Somewhere on this forum there were photos of a homemade 5 gallon bucket with the parts used and hooked to a shop vac...I would like to see those photos if someone has them...

    I got a mighty vac 10 qt unit from Napa, 89.00 takes about 15 minutes to get all other oil out, but there is always something else to do while its working, works for me anyway.

    Something else, I have a number six an line permanently plumbed to the pan at the bottom , about 16 inches long ,and points straight up by the starter, attaches to block with an adel clamp, when I want to drain oil, I unscrew the #6 cap, stick the vac unit to it, using the 3/8 hose and let it rip. I don't have to get close to the pan or fiddle with stuff, very easy for me, don't have to use dipstick hole either, just simple

    Overtons has one. It doesn't hook up to power, you just put the tube(it comes with different size tubes) down your dipstick hole and pump the handle a few times and it will drain it in about 5 min's. So you don't have to run power to your boat....

    here's a "How To" I did awhile back for another message board-

    Over the years, there have been many people that have gotten very frustrated with changing the oil on a boat. I turned a 5 gallon bucket into a vacuum canister to suck the oil out of the oil pan. It works best with an oil drain line attached to the pan but it will also work if a person has a tube that will fit down the dipstick tube.

    Pictured are most of the items you will need.
    The full list is as follows that will cost you about $10.00 at Home Depot or Lowes-
    5 gallon bucket with lid - it's best to have a lid with the 1-1/2" plug or you will need to drill that sized hole
    1/2" conduit locknut
    1-1/2" conduit locknut
    1-1/2" pvc male adapter
    1/2" pvc male adapter
    1/2" threaded coupler - threaded on both ends
    1/2" x 2" nipple



    Pull the plug on the lid or drill the 1-1/2" hole then put the 1-1/2" male adapter through it. I added some tub and tile sealant to the outer side of the adapter but it really isn't needed. Put the 1-1/2" conduit locknut on the underside and snug it down-




    Drill a 7/8" hole in the lid opposite the 1-1/2" and repeat the above with the 1/2" male adapter except put it through from the underside, snug the locknut down and then install the threader coupler and 2" nipple-






    That's it, you're done with putting the top together in about 20 minutes or less-




    What I did with mine is I attached a 4' long 3/8" stainless steel dishwasher supply line to the oil pan when I put the engine together. Up until doing this, I was pulling the line through the plug hole in the transom adapter and letting the oil drain out or I'd put an air line to the breather to force the oil out. Pressurizing the block, even with about 5lbs, always bothered me so I thought doing this would work. I just attach the 3/8" line to the 1/2" nipple, attach a vacuum, put the hose into the 1-1/2" hole and turn it on. The oil gets sucked right into the 5 gallon bucket with no mess whatsoever in about 2 minutes. A shop vac works great as does this little dirt devil vacuum.




    I hope this will make changing the oil a bit easier for many of you.

    no kidding...
    does the hose have to come out of the drain hole or can it come up and over the transom? I made a drain hose this winter but all the AN fittings wont go through the drain hole.
