Oil Change

Hi every one:
Its been a while since I posted.
But I have a question.
Has anyone tried to use a little hand pump to pump the oil in? This will be my first time to change the oil in my 2000 modal 1200 lt, and looking at the fill plug it looks like it is going to be tough.
Thanks

Go to Autozone or where ever you prefer and get one of those funnels with a flexible hose for a few bucks. It works great for engine and tranny. They also have caps for both ends so nothing can get in while not using it.

That is the best way to put the oil in but.... just a lil slow

My set up is a large funnel connected to 3ft of rubber hose. I attached flexible wire to 3 points at the top of the funnel so the set up can hang from the handgrip.
