step by step oil change

DIY ribsters:
If your thinking of chainging the oil in your outboard leg before the start of the new season, follow the link below to a step by step guide. It could prove to be of some use.

Not to nitpick, but as I recall, Yamaha states that the motor should be tilted such that the drain and fill plugs are directly over one another.

For Tohatsu's, the guide is probably pretty accurate.

jyasaki, hmmm...yes your right.

Ribsters, always check your engine manual if in doubt. I just thought that the article could be useful.

Next time I am in the bay area (Stanford or Berkeley) we should meet up for a drink!

That certainly sounds do-able. (I got in a bit of practice last night.)
