My 3GM30F has an oil change pump connected to the bottom of the oilpan. I always that it had a plug. I guess it must have been tapped or welded somehow. But it sure works great.. now for that paint job!
That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

Re: Painting Marine Engines
Ive taken to painting the copper and aluminum with clearcoat. I kept finding a coating of aluminum oxide between the paint and aluminum when stripping and figured there was some kind of reaction between the pigment in the paint and aluminum. Doesnt happen with the clear.
Oxidation does happen unless you use acid etch primer first.Then sealer and then the color coat. Clear coating lots of different bare metals is okay.But it will last a very long time if you use a polyurethane.
