Well to give an update, there is nothing out of the norm to do. It was easy the only bad part is waiting for the sucker to suck the oil out. Thanks guys!

Officer Troutly Sir, I can feel for you, nothing like turning a simple job into a 3 hour clean up. What a mess. I just bought the pump on the can kit. I have hoses off the pans to get all the oil. I hope this way I can keep it in the can and off the floor

its the only way to go. it was a biatch the first time to get em on, but since then, oil changes are an hour for both engines, and that includes drain time.

Matt,
How's the new boat coming along? Are you having fun with it yet? I hope so. You should come out here for the Scope run. (August 27-29) A friend of mine just bought a Tiger with 1,000's. Should be a fun ride.
