i also slide a piece of thin cardboard under filter before removal long enough to clear frame to drain spent oil into drain pan. keeps oil off motor & frame.

Very nice video, but I would like to see you shoot it again changing one step. That was horrendous watching all that oil spill over and down the motor needlessly. A simple one quart plastic milk jug does wonders with a little trimming and can be reused again and again.





Another tip...throw those cloth shop rags in the garbage where they belong. These are the only towels which should come near an engine.

I do not think there is a real need to re-shoot the vid its a good effort and you show the logical next step in keeping the oil off your engine n frame...good on both of you.

Yea I agree.

And what's wrong with cloth rags????

They work, maybe not the best but people have been using them for over 100 years of wrenching on stuff.
