    Marty:
    You can use the same pump you use to fill the transmission. If you don't
    have one go to any auto store and buy one. They work great and usually come
    with the tranny oil. You may have to extend the tube to reach the bottom of
    your tranny but other than that it will pump fine. The next best thing to
    pulling the plug.

  2. Where would I be able to find a nice quality pump to suck out gear
    oil and motor oil. I have tried the bike air pump looking thing and
    the one for the end of the drill, the drill thing did work better but
    took about 20 mins to drain the oil.
    Thanks,
    Marty

    I do not recommend using a pump! However changing oil through the plugs is a
    pretty mess, but all dirt and maybe drops of water may remain in the
    transmission by using the pump. But I do recommend to get out the plugs
    anyway, to drill them from the inside to insert a small magnet! That will
    keep all the dirt stuck to the plug and the oil clean. It makes the
    transmission very much more reliable! Less changes are necessary!

    <font FACE="arial,helvetica"><font SIZE="3" FAMILY="SERIF" FACE="Calisto MT" LANG="0">Hi all, I bought a set of metric ratchet wrenches at the flea market, they
    cost 13.95 for the set. You can get it on the drain plug no problem and it
    makes land transmission plug removal "almost" easy. This style wrench seems
    to stay on the plug better than any that I have found to date.
