    Default Pump to change oil 327 AMC

    Want to change oil in my Gray Marine AMC 327 and Velvet Drive. Book says to use a Gray Marine pump and place over dipstick tube, not inside it. Dipstick tube must run all the way to bottom of oil pan? Any suggestions on pump I should buy?

    The Tempo Oil Boy extractor is a great tool. The kit comes with an array of tubes and a fitting for dip stick applications.
    Also works well for priming a fuel system, starting a fuel siphon, removing water, puring a closed cooling system, etc.

    Since it's cylindrical and tall, it doesn't require much space to use it.

    NO... I'm not a Tempo salesman! I just like the product.

    Keep looking… these are available through other brand names. Look for Marpac, Moeller and others.

    Same here, Bill!
    I've used mine for starting a siphon, purging a closed cooling system cabin heater or water heater, bilge water, home toilet before removing it, ...... even for oil changes!

    I own two... one for water based liquids, and one for petroleum products.

    I made a drive Press/Vac testing unit from one of the larger 2-way Oil Boy extractor.
    The plastic container cylinder went bad.... so I took advantage of the 2-way pump.
    I use the guage and check valve system from Tom Green's kit.
    It works better and faster than any manufactured Press/Vac testing system that I've owned.
