Yes, if you want the oil in the crank case...put it in the top and it will drain down thru the oil galleys to the crank case.

Re: Yanmar JHE oil change

My owners manual (a wonderful thing) on my 3jh5e says I can add oil through either the top or lower fill. I use the upper because its easier.

Re: Yanmar JHE oil change

thanks for all yall's help. We never made it to the oil change. We were running the engine to warm the oil and the engine stopped and would not start again. We figure that is is a problem with the fuel. Not a new problem the fuel is full of dead algae. We will get the fuel and the tank cleaned, change the fuel filters and try again.
