On the subject of oil suckers... You can make one for a coupla $$, get a tank of some kind (I had an old plastic gas can I used to use but an AC guy gave me an empty metal refrigerant tank), drill one hole for a hose barb fitting and another hole for a shop vac hose (like the 1.25" hoses) away from the barb hole. Get some plastic tubing that will fit in the oil dipstick tube (either that will go all the way down or fit tightly at the top) and put that on the hose barb. Put your shop vac in the big hole, the hose in the dipstick tube, get a beer, and turn on your shop vac. A few minutes later you have an empty engine, a beer in yo belly, and it's all clean.
