    oil change, best way to remove oil

    As most of you know I had some minor water ingestion last week and Ive been doing a few oil changes with the regular hand pump.

    Is there anything better that I can use. It takes forever to get the oil out and also how can I tell all or most of the oil is out. It almost seems as the more I pump the more oil keeps coming out !!

    Turn the engine over with WOT and put the bolt in the filter base and suck out the filter base as you spin it over, This and through the dipstick hole will net 4.5 quarts pumped out.

    There is a plug you can remove from the front (closest to driveshaft) oil pump, but that will make a mess.

    Somewhere around here is a post explaining how to "boil off" the water in the oil (after a couple oil changes) it involves pinching an oil cooler hose and running on the trailer backed into some water.

    That might be me. It was a confusing back and fourth disscussion about pinching a hose and overheating the engine and so fourth?????? Here Ya go Lurker, hope you can read the pics? personally, I don't like over heating anything....not even my diner

    In the engine, does the water sink below the oil surface line like it does on lake surface, for example? If you pour oil on the water surface of a lake, the oil stays on top, since they do not mix.

    If this is the case in the engine as well, is there a way to insure the fluid extractor line below the oil surface? I remember reading that the fluid extractor line should only be a certain number of inches long. Can you place the extractor line somewhere else in the engine? Just shooting some ideas out...I could be completely wrong. --jpe

    That's a trick ? .....water will mix with oil if agitated = contaminated oil. Now, if you pour oil in a glass of water and not disturb it, you will see what you stated about the oil in the lake theory. Notice I posted water in the glass and not "Lake" LOL, I live in Santa Barbara, Ca. we have more than enough enviro "MENTAL" communist people around here . I always keep balance. next answer to your ?....try the scavenge oil pump cover drain plug. see pic. the right length of the oil siphon hose if I remember was 475 mm (18.7 in) from it's end.
