NO! The difficult bit is getting the oil out of the sump. Even when the engine oil is warm I find that my lift pump (bought for the purpose) will not 'lift' the oil out. The only way I can get the oil out is to cut four 4-pint milk bottles to make catchers and have a couple more modified 4-pint milk containers to pour the contents of the catchers into to get it al out from under the engine bay. The sump drain is just about as far as I can reach so I always get very messy.
Anyway the job is now done. She runs like a dream.
Happy New Year!
