    Water seperators

    Newbie here. Bought a 2002 38zx.

    Wondering what water sperators do you guys recommend for my 500 efi's (Ac Delco?) and what are you using to extract the oil?

    Buy the Mercury/Quicksilver Fuel/Water separators from a Mercury Dealer.

    As for oil changes, also purchase the Mercury kit to add to the bottom of your oil pans, that have a hose permanently attached to the drain hole. Extend the hose out your bilge plugs and drain this way. MUCH better that slurping it out the dipstick; as this leaves roughly a quart of dirty oil in the pan each time you change the oil. Yuck! is an OSO sponsor and member, and can get you everything you need PDQ.

    Water separater - Merc part # 35-802893T - probably about $10 per filter from a Marina, at least that is the going rate around here.

    I agree with Sydwayz, if you can set up to drain out the back you will get all the oil out.

    Otherwise buy yourself a pump that sucks it out the dipstick. You can get manual or electric, my opinion is the electric ones work much better. On the engines I have used them and they got ALMOST all of the oil out, all but a couple ounces. But I have friends that have left a quart behind.

    if you suck out the oil , tilt the boat in the direction of where the hose bottoms out in the pan[floorjack on trailer]through the dip stick tube, then you can get almost all the oil out. I replacede my filter mounts and use the high flow billet Teague models with the big fram fuel /water filters
