I agree, I couldn't get mine loose last time I changed the oil. I picked up a specialty wrench and will try it next time.

I want to change the oil/filter on my flats boat's Yamaha T60 myself. Where can I find a good how to link ? I hate to bring the boat to the dealer for this as it is a several hour ordeal.

To improve on his success in awkward oil filter placements, that same engineer went all out to position the Yamaha F350 V-8 oil filter in an even more diabolical location.

just remember that advance auto and walmart are corporate owned and your local napa,car quest and your engine service/parts dealer are independently/local owned and will be there for you when you need them

Does anyone know if you can pull the oil filter off of an f-250 without draining the oil first or will it make a mess?

Filled or empty, you're gonna make a mess.

Changing my oil this weekend. Yamaha F225. Advance Auto Parts has a sale going on for Mobil 1 Synthetic oil. 5 quarts plus the filter for $32.99.
Mobil 1 Filter for Yamaha F200 and F225 is M1-102. Mobil 1 10W-30 is head and shoulders above Yamalube in quality and longevity.

If you've never changed your own oil, or perhaps been buying Yamarobbery oil and oil filters...you might want to go down this path. It is so easy and you save quite a bundle doing it yourself.

No affiliation. Just passing this along to my fellow boaters...

Oh, and for some reason I see countless posts from people that think they must buy Yamaha parts to protect warranty. This is an absolute fallacy!!! Buy what you want and keep a record of it. That's all that's required for warranty validation.
There is a $15.00 mail in rebate on that purchase thru 10/31/10. There is also a $12.00 rebate with the purchase of 5 qts. oil.

I use FCW oil and it costs less than $5.00 a quart.

Is the oil filter the same on the 2008 F250 as it is on the F200 and F225?
Was going to use the Moble M1-102.

The F150 through the F250 use the same oil filter

Default Moble M1-102 filter

Just curious has anyone cut one open and compared it to the Yamaha filter like Andy did with the Sierra filter?

While this is a an F115, it is the same basic stuff

I don't know the difference in the filters, but I can tell you I was not happy paying $28.00 apiece for those little bitty oil filters. If anyone has not changed their own oil yet on a 4 stroke yammy, The next time I will be using a pump from the top, I took the cover off and drained it from the bottom plug last time and it was a friggin' mess. Does anyone know if my old mercruiser pump will work on them? Thanks.

I change my F250 filter and never spill a drop. Here's how.
First break the seal and tightness with a filter wrench - loosening it about a 1/2 turn. Then I trim the engine all the way up. Next loosen it just a little bit more, maybe a 1/4 turn - just enough to do the rest by hand. Remove all tools and slip a large zip lock bag over it and over the molded-in drain spout in the block. It takes some finesse but with the bag over the filter unscrew it the rest of the way. Done and clean.

I see absolutely no reason to spend the extra $$ on synthetic oils in my outboard, lawnmowers, generators or autos. They will all die of obsolescence or other ailments long before an oil related engine failure. That is so long as I maintain regular service intervals as needed. Most certainly my 4S outboard will die of corrosion and other symptomatic issues before the guts will fail due to the type/brand of oil I use.

Any potential increase in fuel economy will be negated by condtions on the water and my desire to cruise at higher speeds.

I like to think the faster I go and more time the boat spends up in the air the less friction on the hull and less fuel I burn, bring on the waves.

m1-102 is not an after market filter.It is a high quality filter specifically for synthetic oil.

Here's the link to a yamaha 69J-13440-00 filter vs Sierra. I'd like to see the same comparison with a M1-102. It's over 4 years old. Anyone have a used M1-102 you would cut in half and take some pics to share? I am due for an oil change.

The cheapest I could find a M1-102 filter is for $25 for two, free shipping, no tax ($12.50 each) on Amazon.

I've used the Sierra oil filters in my I/O without any problems but I know there can be differences between OE and aftermarket, sometimes it makes a difference sometimes not. I also used Purolator filters in my vehicles for years, paid 3-4 bucks each for them and never has a problem either, even on my 07 Jeep Hemi...
