    Question What To Use For Oil Change?

    What does everybody use to change the oil? Looking at an Oil Boy from Parker-Yamaha but seems pricey. I know there are other devices out there so I figured I get some opinions.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hmmm, overton's is out of stock.

    West Marine sells it in their store for $64 I think.

    Here it is at another store online for $59.99 http://www.marine-products.com/engin...-5_oil_boy.jsp

    Thanks for the info everyone. Stupid firewall here at work prevents me from accessing certain websites so I'll have to view later when I get home.

    This is the pump I got from Overtons and it works great. It's made of heavy duty plastic and can be used to haul the old oil to be recycled.
    It comes with the right size tubing for our dipstick also.

    It's $50
