Default Oil Change Pump

Thought I would share my home made oil pump. After looking on the internet for a pump and realized it would be about a 100$ for something that would work, I headed to my work shop and started scrounging around for ideas. Things I found.
1. Shop vac
2. Plastic bucket & lid
3. PVC garden hose end (female)
4. A few feet of 3/8 fuel line
The PVC end fits the threads on the top of the dip stick. Make sure when you make your holes in the lid they are air tight when you insert the vac hose end and the 3/8 line. All connections need to be air tight for this to work well. Pump the oil out when its hot, I placed the bucket down in front of the motor, And the shop vac up on the deck.I let it run about 15 min. How long it takes will depend a lot on your shop vac. Hope someone finds this usefull. I posted some pics in my gallery.[/list][/list]

I looked at the tempo oil boy but looks like its unavailible or out of stock now but still about a 100$. Im thinking next oil change of installing a fitting and line to the drain plug of the oil pan. They run about 20$, I assume you can run the line out the aft transum drain. For those of us who trailer this would seem like the better set up. Any one have this? Pros or Cons.
