With the mask, gloves and associated rags, I thought it was an episode of "Dr. Pimple Popper". The Japanese are very disciplined and precise.

Nice find.

White top during an oil change - brave man!!

I was virtually knocking on the screen, so wanting to pass him my 3/8 socket & extension when he was trying to get the drain bolt off!!

Although I will be sending him a link for the syringes I use for refilling the fresh oil!!

I thought that the oil drain receptacle was interesting. I also liked his little cardboard oil tray and the oil pour jug with spout that he used.

Couldn't help but wonder - why not cover the cardboard tray in aluminum foil so he doesn't have to make a new one every time...

syringes lol you use syringes ????
Yes.

Just like I do to refill my car's 2 differentials, I now also use a syringe on Parker.

I fill a (clean!!) glass jar with the required amount of oil and then draw it up into the syringe, measuring as i go. Then gently feed the fresh oil into the filler neck.

The fact that the syringes have the voulme markers printed on the side of the tube, you know exactly how much oil you are putting in the engine.

As a funnel is no longer needed, it reduces the risk of oil / foreign body contamination from the funnel.

Takes half the time that a funnel does, very accurate and no mess.

You can of course install a small piece of tubing to the nozzle of the syringe to get the oil in even further but I don't.

The syringes are resuable after cleaning.

Hmmmm I think he did ... He started it, wiated, screw all the way in the stick then took it out ??

whats missing ???
Proper fill level is almost spilling out, the dipstick is pretty much useless anyway. Regardless, with Honda’s and chondas if using the dipstick you don’t screw it in to check the level. Just place it in and pull out.

I’m really digging the big syringe, I gotta get one.
