Thunderdan-
Mine isn't a Masterlube- I don't think they can assist w/ oil changes. I have a PreLuber, which is an electric positive pressure pump(www.preluber.com). Kit comes with an electronic "brain" that is supposed to time the lubrication cycle, but I didn't use it, just hooked a toggle switch up and control it manually. Oil changes are done by disconnecting the suction line from the pan (Q-D fitting) and hitting the toggle. Pulls all the oil out of the pan into my container. Sweet.

Mine is the Kieth Eikert preluber that also has the ability to change the oil by plugging in a hose to dump the oil in a bucket. Not the cheapest, but definately the easiest .

I have to check if the masterlubes have that ability. That would sure be nice. I wonder if not I could have KE do something to make it easier to change the oil in my 675's. I never asked that question, because I thought that the masterlubes did that. I know it has to be easier and faster and better to drain out of the pan rather than the dipstick. Anyone have any ideas?

The Masterlube will definitely not allow you to change the oil. But you could have the drain hoses put in before the motors go in and then use a Reverso change pump or the new Jabsco system. Since you are going with blower motors a change pump system would be real nice since you can change easily and regularly. The system can pump the old oil right into a container for disposal. It would only be a small addition and probably would not require a new mold

Are you having KE build your engines? If so just tell him you want his prelubers. It's like an electric fuel pump that circulates the oil through the engine, but also has a quick disconnect fitting that plugs in to the plumbing. You just plug in the fitting with whatever length of hose you need to get to the bucket and flip the switch. It's really cool to be able to change the oil this fast and easy. The only mess is changing the filter, I have Fram HP6's mounted horizontally, so there is usually a liitle drip here and there. BTW I'm a nut about having a clean bilge . Good luck.

Are they still new in the box? Maybe you could take them back . I know the KE stuff isn't inexpensive, but what a convenience . I this a new boat? If so congrats, if not congrats on the new engines .
