If your boat is in the water, turn on the engine. If your boat is on a trailer you will need to supply water for the gearcase. The boat needs to be warmed up to at least 130 degrees. Place outboard motor flusher over the water intakes. A hose will supply water to the engine via the motor flusher. After 5 minutes turn off and remove dipstick.
Insert the oil extractor suction tube into the dipstick tube and slide all the way till you can’t anymore. Suction out the St. Petersburg motor oil.
Hold a rag around the oil filter and carefully remove with a wrench.
