I have a Reverso with 3 minifold positions. Port, starboard and generator. I like it since it pumps both directions and I can just pump in new oil from a 5 gallon can.

Any of them that attaches to the drain plug in my opinion.

I am buying Pre lubers for my repower. They pump oil before you start the cold engine and after you shut down to help the cool down. The additional benefit is that you can change the oil very easily.

A little pricy, but in line with other systems. Good package for all the benefits. You can change the oil in your suit. Sold direct on line or from several marine vendors including Defender.

I have the Yamaha F225 four strokes and they recommend using a changer to pull the oil out though the dipstick opening so I need something with some power. I'm sorry, but I should have been more specific with my original post. Thanks.

Powerboat Reports evaluated these last year and they gave the Jabsco Porta Quick a good review. I saw it online at Boaters Worls for $140. I haven't bought one yet, but that's the one I think I'll get.

The Jabsco electric is rated best, 140-159.00. In manuals, the tempo, 49.99-54.99 gets high marks- Cooker

Captain John I have the same motor as you and have been changing my own oil for 2 seasons now, and my pump works great...Tempo fluid extractor kit...the oil boy...it will even pull the oil out of your truck thru the dipstick....

The suction type works ok, just slow.

For the Yamaha F200/225 make sure the capture tank holds at least 6 qt. On these the dipstick method gets all but about 10 drops out, and no chance to strip threads of forget the gasket.

I'll second the Oil Boy. I think it's about $50, sucks it out pretty quick too. I give it about a dozen pumps and walk away for 10 minutes and it's all out. It only holds about 5 quarts, but it has a cutoff so it can't overfill, plus it is clean and painless to dump into a gallon jug for disposal.

For the money I don't think the Tempo can be beat.....and not just because I sell them *

If you*have a Yamaha 4-stroke*you will need to use the smaller ID hose to go down the dipstick or you may want to consider one of these......*http://www.thehulltruth.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=45642&start=1&posts=2

I second or third the Tempo unit although it does only hold five quarts it's neat and clean to work with. With the pour spout it's hard to spill a drop while I transfer the used oil to a five gallon can.

So is it better to get the manual Tempo and save $100 or to get the Jabsco electric pump and hook it up to batteries etc.Do you have to keep pumping or does it have a siphon affect once started?

Just pump it a dozen or so times, it builds a vacuum in the system, so you can walk away and drink beer (or other) while the oil is draining.

Cgrand,

I can't remember on the Suzuki 140 if it has a female garden hose thread on the dipstick tube. If it does then you are set.

If the distance from the base of the garden hose thread to the top of the dipstick tube is very short or flush with the threads then you will not need the Yamaha adapter. As you can see in this picture the Yamaha dipstick tube is fairly long and the supplied Tempo fittings will not work.
