    Quick question

    for changing the oil

    a.) can the drain hose be pulled out through the bilge plug in the back to drain into a pan or is it only meant to be used to suck out with a evap suction type device?

    b.) any issues changing the oil on the water?

    Yes to "b" if you attempt "a"

    A) you can pull the hose and rain into a pan. It is really slow to let it drain on it's own.

    B) can't think of any problem with changing oil on the water.

    I pull the hose through the bilge
    plug hole and use a hand pump to pump the oil out. This way I don't accidentally spill the old oil in the boat while I am getting out.

    Changed the oil today, only got around 4l out including filter waste. I even stuck the Evap hose down the dipstick tube but it wasn't picking up anymore. Manual states around 5.5 liters so I was kinda confused.

    What do you guys do for v drive and transmission change? Do you just suck it out fill as well or go to the length of tryin to remove the drain bolt on the back of the Walter unit and also clean the screen on the front?

    5.5 quarts.

    That being said 4 liters is only 4.2 quarts but it's common to be a quart low due to burning oil under a load

    I have changed the oil 5 times on our boat & I only get about 4 quarts out of each time. I have also checked the oil level before I changed it and checked it on the lake and it has always read full. This last time I even let the oil drain for 6 days and I still only got about 4 quarts.

    Depending on the filter, you will have .5 qt or better in there. Next time you change it, catch as much as possible, then drain the filter for a day and add what you get out of it to what is removed from the crankcase. I bet you will get a little closer to 5 qts.In as many different boats ive done, I rarely get out what the manual says it takes to fill it up. I make sure of the level before I start, note what I take out, and then refill accordingly. I pour in at least what was removed and add a little if it was down before I started, but not overfilling buy putting in what the manual states.
