Give me a moment to gather some info

Customer:

okay

Chris :

Ok, the models with the honda engine make things a little more difficult, i cant see you tilting the whole splitter on its side without breaking your back

Chris :

I have another option

Chris :

Tilt the splitter in such a way where the tire opposite of the oil fill is proped up to tilt the splitter, put a long under the wheel or block of wood.

Chris :

Now get your self a turkey baster and suck the oil out.
