Help oil change

I have a 2012 x14v with the Ilmor 6.0. I bought a Jabsco Oil Changer with the electric pump. I tried putting the pick up tube in the dip stick hole and it went in fine but no oil would come out, also tryed the oil fill hole on top off motor no luck, also tried push the tube up the oil change hose but it was to small. I don't have a trailer so the boat stays on a sling in the water, so I am not comfortable putting the oil change hose down the drain plug as called for in the Ilmor manuel. Oil was hot, and there is oil in the motor. What am I doing wrong, it can't be that complicated. I also veried the pump was working. Thanks and
any help would be great.

The one on my 85 is 1/4 not if I'm not mistaken.

NPT, I hate autocorrect.

Get a fitting 1/4 NPT with a male nipple on the other end and just push your oil changer's hose onto it. clamp it tight if necessary.

Definitely 1/4". I had same problem with drain line and figured it was tube had uphill slope. Trying pump this weekend. Agree it does seem more difficult than it should. Pump should do trick if using correctly.

Use a fitting like this one 1/4" NPT to 1/8" tube fitting. You can get them at Lowe's or probably any hardware store. Lowe's is all plastic. The tubing from the pump pushes in the end and creates an airtight fit so the pump will suck right from the drain hose and do a pretty complete job. Then you push on the fitting and the hose will come back out so you can suck oil from the transmission too.

Put one of these pumps on the end of the drain line and suck the oil out.

As long as you can create a seal between the oil pump suction hose and the sump hose on the motor, it will suck oil. Make sure it seals or it won't work. You will just suck air. Also it's a lot quicker if you can have the oil warm. If the oil is cold, be patient.
