Default 2001 2900 SCR port engine oil filter

Hi guys. Fairly new to the site.

I recently purchased a 2001 2900 SCR with twin 4.3 Mercs. I have it pretty much winterized for the season but how do you change the oil filter on the port engine? I cannot for the life of me figure out how to reach it. I see it, but cannot get to it. If I removed the fresh water tank, I could get to it with no problem but I'm hoping there is an easier way than ripping up the engine compartment. Help.

Thanks,

John

John...I'm sorry to say that i'm not familiar with that engine....but....when you do get it off...I'd seriously look at a remote oil filter set up....it sits on top of the engine and the filter is right there for you to replace.....may take some doing..but it would be well worth it..

oh yeah..welcome to the zoo...

SP, thanks for the response. I guess installing remotes on both engines is the way to go to save time and aggravation. Any idea where I can get them? Thanks

any auto parts store will have remote oil filter kits...make sure they fit the block you have and it's an easy job to install....take pic's ...we'd love to see how yours comes out..



SP :hello:
