I prime the sump every change. If you have never done it before, may be an idea to pull the right running board, will make it easier to remove the crank plug.on my 400ho, i can put a 14mm box end wrench up through the hole in the skid plate.



See the plug above and left of the date stamp? That is the crank plug.

An awesome video done by Jordan, a site member.


I run a Car Quest (Wix) filter, and Quaker State 5W50 in mine.
Thanks,

Was it in the video? On the top of the oil tank is a hose with a slit in it. Use pliers or vise grips and squeeze the hose 2"!from the oil tank, start it up, let it run for 20 seconds, then release the pliers/vise grips. You do this on the right side of the tank,


Thanks,
