Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

Yes, Chris, you simply add new oil through the filler tube. The oil pump will pull oil from the crank case and fill the oil filter when you start the engine. Run engine a couple minutes checking for leaks around the oil filter cover and oil line fittings. Turn your engine off and check the oil level. Add oil as necessary to bring it to the mark taking care not to overfill.
: Hello All,

: I am getting ready to change the oil in my old 46'. I have the new drop in filter element and seals. After I drain the pan and replace the filter, do I simply add the oil through the dip stick channel -or- do I also need to fill the filter element? I want to be sure to do this right.

: Thanks

: Chris
