Any secrets to draining the oil-cranked the boat at the house yesterday and got the temp upto 160 and the oil was SLOW coming out of the release hose!! pulled hose through the rear plug and was just wondering if I can do anything different to expedite


Thanks

Connect that hose to a suction pump rather than gravity. Goes much faster and is much cleaner.

I just let mine drain all while and also pour a half a quart of fresh oil or so in to help flush some old oil out

suction pump or let it drain for a couple of days. also make sure to take off the oil filter to allow air into the motor. might put a rag over the oil filter hole.

I always thought you just turned your boat upside down to let it drain or traded boats at oil change time!
