Oil Draining

Postby WKPoor » Sat Sep 17, 2005 11:21 pm

Well I don't know if this is really a tip but it solved an oil draining problem for me today and it might work well for others. I was changing the oil an a Cub Cadet with the deck on and I didn't want to remove the deck and finding a suitable pan eluded me also. Tada!! A one gallon zip lock baggy filled the bill. You can snake it in anywhere and after it fills just zip it up and than pull it out without spilling a drop. How many times before had I struggled with machinery where the drain plug was in the worst place possible. The bag can be made to fit just about anywhere. I actually came up with this a couple of weeks ago will trying to capture the oil from a filter inside a cowling. There wasn't enough room for a pan but the bag could lay down flat.

When draining the oil on some planes, I stop by the FBO to get ice bags. I dont put the oil in them, just use it to cath the oil and oil filter. Sorta the same thing.
