Oil Pan Drain Fitting For Oil Removal
After our discussion of drain pan fittings and pumps a week or so ago I decided to see if I could find one of the drain pan oil removal fittings I had used in the past. Overtons used to sell a complete oil removal system - brass drain pan fitting, hose and 12v oil removal pump. I installed them on a couple of my boats and for a number of friends. Some of the installs are over 15 years and are till working great. Overtons no longer sells the pump and I believe Quick Drain was bought-out by a competitor, but like I posted in the earlier discussion, I think, at least as of 2015, Overtons still sells the oil pan fitting and hose as a complete assembly and you pick the pump yourself from another supplier. You can see from the fitting that there was a quality Teflon/noryl washer on the pump end of the fitting. This was the end that I cross notched to get all of the oil out. I thought I had a spare around somewhere and found it as I thought it might be interesting. All this has got me motivated to see if I can find an "automatic" oil removal system that is not through the dipstick for my 502s as the through the dipstick removal system left about a pint of used oil in my pan before I went to the bottom-type oil pan removal fitting. At the moment I like the Reverso systems.
