Is this a good one? I need to buy one this week. Anyone sell it cheaper than this? This is my first boat that did not have outboards so I do not have a the oil changer. It will be for a 525 EFI if that makes any difference. Also what do you do about the alligator clips if you have billet covers over the battery? Can you get a small battery just for the oil changer? Thanks Mike

They work mint and well worth it. Do you have the hose permently attached to the drain plug? The only thing I dont like is the impeller goes bad often.

Mike, you can borrow mine if you need to. I have the one pictured in your link and it has worked perfect the last 6 years.

Mine works great, I use it for boat and my cars, never had a problem you can pump the old oil back in empty jugs with reverse. I used mine one time with a battery charger when I didn't have a battery. Just make sure to warm it up first

I have the Shur-flo, 5 yrs old, original impellor. Works great, worth every penny. I use mine with a jump box.

The only thing I did not like about that one was it did not have reverse. I was thinking the reverse would be nice for getting rid of the old oil. Mike

No hose mounted. I was going to go thru the dipstick.

Mike, thanks for the offer. My wife signed us up for some Mirabay poker run on June 24th. Are you going to do it? It is not going to be much fun if the couple other fast boats in here don't do it.
When are you coming for the test flight? Mike
