I have a 30HXC126 on site that is ' new to me ' and has over 3,000 hours on it.
Oil pressure is sketchy at times, I am pretty sure the internal and external oil filters have never been changed ( paint is not disturbed and records are non -existant ) - The manual states the internal filters should be changed @ 200 -300 hrs.
I have new internal and external filters, a manual, and have a question or two:
It states when changing the external filter that ..... '' A quart of oil is typically what is removed during this process. ''
The next couple paragraphs go on to detail the internal filter changeout etc., but there is no mention of replacing the quart removed. I also have new oil, and would prefer not to re-use POE; is there any advice from you guys for this procedure and best way to replace the oil - of course I have a hand pump, can slurp it in under vacuum etc.
Any comments would be appreciated.
