Default Re: Oil change issue

YOU Probably did but change oil filter also.
My tractor has compression release and I pull that after I have drained the oil and taken the filter off.
I then run engine for a moment,, it does not start,, with compression release pulled.
This pumps a bit more dirty oil out of filter opening.
Good Luck

That also runs the risk of the oil pump losing itís prime, which risks total oil pressure loss after start up (unless you have the know-how and equipment to re-prime the oil pump.). The few ounces of old oil remaining in the machine is insignificant during a regular oil change considering all the oil still entrained in other passageways.

Highly unlikely because it's a gearotor pump but none the less, a bad idea.

Thank You for that advice will skip that step in future.
