Hi Matthew. On the small pump, the pipe off the bottom end ( ie the end opposite the pumping handle)goes into the sump and the oil comes out of the top end. If in doubt, RTFM, or, in none-complex situations, try it the other way! Smear a light spread of oil around the new filter rubber, turn it on firmly hand tight, not mega. The rubber gasket is designed to blow out if for any reason oil pressure builds up in that part of the system, & too tight prevents that safety feature from happening. The glass bowl on the fuel filter should've been spotless before you re-installed it. Wipe clean with a paper towel or loo roll. The sight bowl (ie glass bowl) is there so you can see if your fuel has water or bug in it. Didn't look like yours had any, but wise to check. The black specks you could see is just the filter doing it's job. If the old filter has been on more than 6 months, don't reuse it (fuel or oil) as they never seal properly again and always leak. When doing this lot in future, make sure you have everything there before you start (incl yoghurt cups, favourite roasting pan, her best fluffy cotton towel and the sink sponge) and get yourself some mechanics rubber gloves. For some strange reason, the detergents in the oil really attack your skin in a marine environment. There's an old saying that the most useless things on a boat are a naval officer and a suitcase. You just narrowly avoided adding pongo's and "sarcastic lady voiceover specialists" to the list :-). For future lighthearted reference, does it really matter which hole..? did it ever? Is this why I'm single? LOL.

Guys the small tube goes down the dipstick tube until the tip hits the sump. When the oil is all out you punch a hole in the top of your filter so the oil in that goes into the sump too. You then poor some clean oil in the top of the engine to flush it through and use the vacuum pump again. Remove the filter oil the O ring to stop it sticking to the engine block. Then refill the engine. Date the oil filter and write the engine hours on it with a sharpie. Your primary diesel filter has a glass bowl as it is also a separator and you can see any water through the glass. There is also a small bolt on the bottom to drain any water or sediment off. You must change the O rings on these CAV filters as they deteriorate and you can end up sucking in air. No need to pre fill the CAV filter. Put it back in but leave the securing bolt 1 full turn from tight and use the primer pump on the engine. If you don’t have a primer pump use the largest hose on your oil extractor over the filter bolt to draw the fuel into the CAV primary filter. Stick a nice big magnet on the oil filter to help keep the oil in the engine clean. Hope this helps Ant and Cid. Xx

I think the reason you have such a hard time taking the oil filter off is that you tighten it to much. Your a big strong lad. I put a little oil on the rubber seal and tighten up hand tight, then a little more with a single hand. I'm a small old man, 76, and haven't changed oil in the last 10 years but that worked before on my diesel pickups. Love your channel, wish I could do what you two are.

A tip I haven't seen anyone write in the comments yet... It's good practice to write the date and engine hrs on your filters when you change them. I'm sure you have a lot book too, but it's something I've found helpful over the years.

I've been following you guys on the tracker across the Atlantic. Almost to the Caribbean!!! Way to go guys! Is this your biggest passage yet? Hope it went smoothly.

Chris Rushing That's a real good suggestion thanks Chris!

Great video guy's . DIY stuff is always a hit. I always use the tiny nylon tube to slide down the inside of dipstick tube that goes right to bottom of the oil pan. I didn't see 9 litres come out. If that pump only holds 6 1/2 litres then you might still have 2 1/2 litres left in the oil pan. It's still going to work. You left out the part where you run test the engine. That's the best part. You should test it before you go sailing in the ocean and then need it in an emergency. Cheers
Living With The Tide
Living With The Tide - 6 years ago
Robert Orzech Hey Rob! We unfortunately had an oil leak which is why there wasn't as much oil as there should have been. We also ran the engine before an ocean test so all is well, should have filmed it!

MATHEW..... What are you doing? That Oil Pump goes the otherway round... the thin hose goes into the oil chamber and the thicker one is then directed into a container/bottle!! No wonder it didn't work!!

Here's some tips to ease the oil change chore...

First, start the engine for about fifteen minutes to warm it up. The hot oil will be easyer to extract.
When putting on the new filter, put some oil on the rubber gasket. It will prevent the gasket to stick on the metal when the engine is hot.
When the gasket make contact and you sense a little resistance, you turn the filter 1/4 to 1/2 turn more and voilà ! If you put to much pressure, it will be very hard to unscrew the next time you try to get it out.

Fair winds !

Mathew before you remove the oil filter use a screw driver and punch a hole in the top of the oil filter and let it drain into the sump, ski boat fix, I lot less mess, great videos guys, greeting from Ann Arbor Michigan.

Good video guys. It's a lot easier on my little Yanmar 1 gm. BTW your vacuum pump should really only need pumping 4 or 5 times to create the vacuum, but it doesn't matter really. You may have to check your fuel tank and check for 'dirt'. You shouldn't really have any in there. Dose the fuel with a Biocide just to be sure it's not bug! Good luck with the tooth. Had one of mine removed in the week, not nice LOL!

It is recommended to put some oil on the oil filter gasket.  The glass under the fuel filter is to contain water if you have some of that in your fuel.
If you put a plastic bag around your oil filter before removing it it will prevent an oil disaster.
Craig Perth AU

Always put a coat of oil on the new oil filter rubber seal , helps to seal it better . When you take the old one of , if you have a plastic bag , put that over the oil filter first , then twist off. Cheers guys , Take Care

Mathew, when you are changing the oil filter again, dip your finger in the old oil and rub it around the new filter rubber seal that mates with the engine. Good work fella... "Fail to prepare Prepare to fail" is my new motto, well i am off for a Sunday Pint
