Lofrans anchor winch

I want to change the oil in my Lofrans.   
How can you drain the old oil ?
How much to refill -- can you overfill the oil reservoir ?

You can use a small hand pump with a small dia. tube to extract the oil via the filling cap.
It takes 500 ml of 90 grade oil....there is a sight glass on the front of the windlass where you can see the oil level rising.
Yes you can overfill it...if you want to....but if you put 500 ml in it from empty, that will be correct.

Alan,  Thanks. Trying to extract the old oil with a pump is an interesting game !
