Kev, you do understand that I agree with you guys right?

Frankly, I don't know right off hand what I do, but as you point out, there are certain circumstances that dictate, nay mandate, best practice. When those arise, I pay particular attention to the order of things. Like many of us here, I've been wrenching on stuff pretty much my whole life. Well, maybe not before age 10.

No I couldn't get that from your response.

Not that it was important, it was just a matter of conversation.

Let's face it, there are a ton of things we learn over the years - some of which is ridiculous, some of which just doesn't matter, some of which is myth etc.

Most of which is probably not important right?

A tip when you are changing the oils, take the drain plug out first, the oil comes out quite slowly, then take the fill plug out, this keeps the discharge rate to a minimum until you have your hands/tools out of the way.

Funny, I do it the other way around so that it comes out with a rush.  I hope that anything heavier sitting in the bottom of the sump may be flushed out so it can be inspected in the light of day.
