Pump oil change made easier


#1

I found this gadget to change oil in my pump. It’s like an overgrown syringe the size of a grease gun. No drain plug to fool with. Just stick the tube in the fill cap and pull back on the plunger. Took me about 4 minutes to change oil.


#2

I just use my 12v roof pump…takes 45 seconds to change oil


#3

Plus the oil lubes up the internals of the 12v pump making it last longer


#4

Hope you guys know I’m joking lol


#5

Yep…When I read it I just pictured the oily mess you’d have the next time you post treated someone’s driveway.


#6

NAPA has them. About 15$ I think. Good for pulling out gas at the end of season before winter too.


#7

On sale now. Figured a man of @Patriotspwashing means had one of these. At this price I might buy one.

Man that thing has China written all over it. You have a burner don’t you? Buy yourself a backup fuel pump and use it in the mean time as a oil extractor ran off a drill. Then you’ll have a Good ol USA pump for those oil changes.


#9

How big of a mess did you make since it won’t hold a suction? Maybe you could adapt it to run a longer smaller i.d hose so you can keep it pointed upward.


#10

I use a good old made in USA Liquivac. Bullet proof and works like a charm.


#11

Change the oil?

That whole unit looks like it never been used
:open_mouth:


#12

I like it!


#13

22$ is a good price too!


#14

Those are slick. I hope it holds up well for you.


#15

Read the reviews before you get too carried away, about 50-50. But what the heck, for $22 who cares. Can probably buy the service plan for $2.


#16

Not a mess at all. Just turn the suction hose upright when pulling out of the pump. Maybe 2 or 3 drops.


#17

Word, I change my pump oil once a year and they get rode hard in that time.


#18

It worked well for me.


#19

What is a liquivac?

Here you go. What most the small engine dealers use around here. They have the bigger one, I just have the smaller unit.
