How many of you have used your old Holley fuel pump and converted it to drain the oil out of your pan through the dip stick tube? If you have does it work well or not at all..thanks..

It wasn't a holley pump but I have used an old chevy electric pump and it seems to work a little faster than just gravity flow from the drain plus with a tube on it.

I use an old oil pump and a drill. Drill and tp for fitting and connect a hose on either end. Takes about 1 minute and the pan is empty:)devil

Kind of a "novel idea" although that type pump doesnt care for any particles , We use a Vacuum "pot" with a dip stick catheter very clean and efficiant :)coffee

I rigged a cordless drill with a inline hose pump that connects to the drain hose! Works real good for about 25 bucks! WT:)devil

Hardware store I think you can get them at NAPA too! It uses water hose ends and I rigged it to attach to an AN fitting on my pan hose I will get you a pic. tomorrow! You can also use a cord type drill for more speed! WT:)devil

I use an old Holley red, but don't use the dipstick tube. I use an oil pan drain hose. It is faster than just letting it drain by gravity, but fuel pumps pump fuel better/faster than oil.
Did you take the screen filter out of the pump? I used one to pump water thru the engine in the pits. Moved more water without the screen. When pumping water, I had to run WD40 thru it at the end of the weekend or it would seize up by the next weekend. Then it was a tear down to free it up again.

I choose the old fashioned way of draining the oil.....Run it until I put a rod through the side of the block:D:D:D

J/K. I use a cheapy pump that attaches to a drill, draw it out from the drain plug via a fitting I put on the drain.:)devil Takes about 1 minute to drain it
