I am using a bucket at present to transfer engine oil from drum to engine when doing a oil change. My Rodeo also takes the same oil in the gearbox. Can anyone recomend a brand of hand pump to suit a 20 litre oil drum that is durable and effective. I did buy a Mcnaught oil syringe to change the gearbox oil but this was both slow difficult to fill and messy.I think a good drum hand pump would be the go that could be used to fill both engine and gearbox.
Got a good hand pump, tell me more ?

Does the mcnaught pump have a plastic "lid" or a metal one? The "lid" is the part of the pump that screws onto the 20L drum. I bought a pump (different brand) about 18 months ago. Great pump until the plastic "lid" started to dissolve.

The McNaughts have a plastic "lid". Never had a problem with one dissloving with the range of oils that we use at work & thats anything from 10W to 85/140. Some type of super strong solvents may cause harm to it tho., but used for gear oil only it should last for years.

Ok!, Mcnaught is still your answer for a 20ltr drum pump.

Take your hand off the pump your using now and hopefully you might sort it??

Why use a pump at all??

When decanting oil from a 20 litre (round) drum, simply lay it on it's side on your work bench with enough clear space either side to roll it along about half a metre. Make sure the lid is at the top when you start. Take the lid off and hold a jug (or whatever you're gunna pour the oil into the motor with), under the hole where you just removed the lid. Slowly roll the drum along the bench so the hole moves away from top dead centre.........oil will start to pour from the hole into the container you're holding in your other hand.

Too easy............and FREE

Cheers

Yeah. that works fine but:
""My Rodeo also takes the same oil in the gearbox""
This is why he wants a drum pump, so that he won't have to tip the Rodeo on its side to fill the gearbox

well theres a few different styles of pump too, hook nozzles with trigger, which you want for gearbox work, push to pump or push and spring return to pump etc.

mcnaught are great, stm and alemite are pretty good also. each offer about 5 or 6 different 20 lt pumps to choose from.

buy a good one and it'll last a lifetime.

Yes there are differnt pumps available.It seems the mcnaught c7 hand pump shifts 100ml per stroke or 50 strokes per 5 litres, Hmmm. The spring loaded pump with trigger model S 20 delivers are much better 340mls per stroke but I suspect this is expensive but will price it. The pour into bucket or jug method is still a good method. I guess I should have asked how people change their diff and transmission oil ?
