Just changed oil in reserve, oil filter, and drain engine crank case. Can I just restart w/o engine damage?

Yea no problem. Did you run it to warm up the oil before the oil change? If so no problem even if you didn't it's not that big of a deal but I would recommend it for next time

I believe priming is only necessary if the hose from the oil tank has been disconnected to clean the in tank screen.

Prime only needed if oil screen removed...

x2. Although extra priming won't hurt anything. I do it just because it's so much fun :D

Right now I'm replacing the wheel bearings and that is about as much fun as I can bear at this time :shocked1:

I do it as it's "cheap insurance" and a "good habit" to do.... only takes a few etra seconds for the piece of mind, knowing your pump is primed.

Ugh. I'm no gear head, fluid changes and clutch kits are about as risqué as I get. I feel for you guys that do real wrenching like that.

Think about that a little bit though..... weather you disconnect the line to clean the screen or just simply drain the tank and skip the screen (it's a waste of time anyways).... the oil from the line still drains back into the tank, while your draining the tank. As the fitting is only a screen and not a oneway vavle (to the best of my knowledge)!!! IMHO it's still good practice..... I'd rather "know" my pump / system has oil then to leave it to chance.

But do as you will.... it's yours!

Well, it certainly wouldn't hurt but you'd think the designers/builders of the machine would know the correct procedure: ponder:

Yes, I'm not doubting that..... but my thought of "drain back" via either method still holds some ground. I'd also think the pump would remain primed from the oil stored within @ key off. :dunno: I just think it's good practice to not take short cuts that may become costly, when no added cost is expenced and only an additional minute is wasted.
