I have seen those type of pumps at Walmart with male connections on each end. Just have to get the hoses and fittings to adapt.

Finman- Somewhat true but those have impellers that are generally only rated for water & will disintergrate after one oil exposure.

Vagrant- If your engines have oil pan type drain hoses installed, OEM or aftermarket we can adapt to them, just let me know what your needs are.

I've tried the ones @ Walmart and Home Depot and the impellers didn't last, they too, burned up! The 12 VDC pump/bucket set-up I bought from West marine was more $$ ~149.00 after rebate is really working well for me. Plus, I just put the pump in reverse, (Switch in opposite direction) and I pump out into my 5 gallon oil waste bucket sitting on the dock, the one I use for the oil changes on the Powerstroke and the Jag.
Good luck, I personally haven't had any good luck with the drill driven impeller pumps.

Replace the drill powered impeller with this pump from harbour freight http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...temnumber=9576 and then you have something. I bought mine on sale for $19.

I have only done two changes so far, but it works well. 12v power. Anything is better than the drill powered impellers IMO

For the record this isn't a Walmart pump that one might use to empty their water heater or aquarium it's a Flo-Tec pump designed specifically for use w/ petroleum based products & it includes a 90 day warranty.

Excellent idea putting this together so people have something easy to choose!

Panther,

Appreciate the kudos. Obviously many of us have found a way to change our oil that works best for our individual application I'm just sharing mine w/ the hopes some others may benefit. I realize OSO is primarily performance boaters but for the few that aren't & want to save a few $$ servicing their own equipment I've provided an extremely simple relatively inexpensive option including detailed instructions and a warranty.

Thanks Michael. The pump works flawlessly. It is a very nice setup and has all the components that I needed for the Ilmor oil change. Very nice package
