    I have that one, and it usually worked great.
    But last fall I tried to pump the oil back out of the bucket after it had gotten cool and something went bad. The impeller is still good. The pump blows bubbles in the oil but won't suck.

    Note to self.... don't try to pump oil that has gotten cold.

Simple Green cleans up the bildge very well. I suggest that you heat up the engines to operating temp and suck the oil from the dipstick and put those oil absorbers in the bildge and line the bildge with with lots of old towels. Try to attach the hoses to the oil drain pans as fast as you can. Let me know if you need some help and I will come over. I know this sounds weird but...I can take my leg off and fit into some small places...yes it has it's advantages sometimes! I'm home all week.
    If you are around in the morning and you are bored stop bye the house. I am going to take the headers off the center motor to get them tested. Mike
