SV- do you thing the oil pump is necessary? it does have a drain plug
. can I get an oil pan under the plug
? from the question- you can tell i have not been in the engine compartment- sorry for the stupid questions- but i will be travelling a long way to complete this task and I want to take as much as possible to minimize my running around. I really do appreciate all of the tips.
Sailcruiser- I hope NAPA can match the filter- I am trying to find the filter size now. None of the tech manuals
i have found indicate the size of the filter. the boat is at a marina and they may have it- more than likely not.
Once the oil is changed, I hope to hook up the elctrical, water
, check the exhaust
and crank the engine- the boat is "hard" - dry docked. she needs some love. travelling 300 miles to get to her. So- doing as much research
on this as possible before I travel.
