and place it in the bucket (you may need to extend the line)
3. disconnect the line that goes to the cooler and let that empty on the ground, your neighbors grass or anotherbucket.
4. start it up, cycle it through all gears few times, you may want another person to tell you when the bucket it almost empty, re hook up all lines.
5 drop pan, change filter, add 4-5 qts of fluid.
good sound advice and it will work gauranteed. but it can be messy as hell.
or drill real small hole in pan let drain for a nite and in the morning put a self tapper in the hole:tonka:
me ill use my flush machine then pull pan to put filter in it.
