I don't have personal experience with them, but this is the only way some of the foreign cars can be drained of oil. Many if not all of the Mecerdes are this way.

I use a one of those plastic drain containers that are a molded drain pan and contain the oil once drained. Works slick. They fit under an inboard nice.

Something else for inboards is a hose that connects to the oil pans drain instead of the plug. That stays there and hose lays in the bottom of the hull when not in use. Theres a petcock on the other end you slip through the boats bilge drain. I like that one even better.

The advantage over the dipstick pump is it lets everything drain.

I know some people use them on small 4 strokes. I have seen one used before and worked slick. He liked it.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
