Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Lofrans anchor winch

I have a hand pump with a 7mm OD suction tube. I've tried threading it down into the windlass and can't get it to the oil. What is the trick? Smaller tube?

I use a Pela Pump. I chose the 6 liter size.
Biggest benefit is that it sucks all the oil out of genset and engine as I leave it in the sump overnight. Will suck out the oil from your Lofrans too. Works good to remove foam from the C drive oil tank when the seals are no longer ..new.
Also sucks water out of inaccessible places as the tubes are about 4 MM and can snake into some quite small spots.
