My topsider was stolen from my house...

So When the time comes, I'll be looking for an electric pump oil changer. I'll probably buy that nice marine one that has a huge capacity. sooner or later. But for now, its drop the pan, crawl under, undo the drain plug, and let it drain for a while... Kinda sucks, now I gotta wash my hands after I change the oil... instead of having them stay nice and clean with the topsider.

For my oil cap I bought an adjustable plumbers wrench, maybe its called a basin wrench. its like a big adjustable wrench, with two long fingers. I just adjust it to the right size, and one simple turn and that cap is loose and off. cost was cheap, and it works well.
