    Scott: That tag is on the engine sump drain hose. Load the extractor hose into that hose and pump out the oil. If you could read the tag it says to hook the drain hose up above the sump so oil doesn't drain out.
    and cautions about oiltag1.jpg oiltag1.jpg oiltag2.jpg oiltag1.jpg chaffing.

    Thanks for the nice images! Got the oil today and now I’m going to order the filter.
    Wish me luck.

    I use a oil extractor on our Universal M-25. Push the small tube inside you pan drain tube and Voila. You can use any appropriate oil filter from an auto-parts store. We used Engine Oil (SHELL ROTELLA T6), Oil Filter (WIX 51334XP) and Fuel 10 micron Filter (WIX 33390). If you have one, don't forget the water/fuel separator primary filter (Ours is a Dahl 101-30 - Racor Equivalent is PF101-30) and if you have an external electric fuel pump there is one in there as well. (On ours it is Catalina Direct Part# Z2544.)

    BTW - The oil filter on our M-25 is under the alternator, the filter on the starboard side under the injectors is the fuel filter. Be sure to get some absorbent rags because you WILL spill some fuel and oil.

    Thanks for the heads up. Got everything changed out this past weekend. Next time I will use baby diapers. Think it will absorb and hold the excess.
    Not too hard a job after I’ve done it now.
