Excellent advice here. I hoped that somebody with more talent would chime in.

jjf will probably agree with me on this. DO NOT use the drain plug at the bottom of the cases to drain the oil on a regular basis. It's not made for this and once you cross thread that plug you'll want to shoot yourself. It's a magnetic plug used to pickup any steel frags floating around in the system.

There shouldn't be very much oil in there. The sump, it's not like an oil pan.

I would still take a look at the check balls.
