Default Updated information on items for flushing supercharger oil

Hello,

I recently purchased my 95 SSEi and I need to flush my SC so I read through the techinfo listing:

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=22

I had a bit of trouble locating the components so I thought I'd share with the group.

1 - The part number for the SC oil in the bulletin is incorrect. The guy at the dealer looked it up and said it was an incorrect number. There is a number on the bottle that I got, it is: 1 #12345982. Not sure if the first "1" means quantity or is part of the number. $6.95 each.

2 - I found the syringe at Jewel Osco, but I would think any large supermarket chain like Albertsons, Jewel, Dominicks, etc would carry them. The brand name is Ezy Dose 2 teaspoon oral syringe. Fits right into the 1/4 tubing perfectly. Under 2 dollars each.

3 - 1/4" tubing. No luck at any drug stores etc, but Home Depot is the place I found this, I would guess most large home improvement centers would carry them. I got 20' actually for like 2 dollars, shortest length they sold.

I'll double check that oil number when I get home to my spare bottle. Thanks for the update, and let us know how the oil looks. Pay particular attention for small particles of metal in the oil when it'* in the syringe.

I bought 2 syringes. One to remove the oil, and one to put more oil in. Didn't want to contaminate the new oil by using the dirty syringe/tubing.

2 complete sets.

I bought 2 syringes as well. Now when I draw it out - how much oil is going to come out? Am I to draw all the oil that is inside there into the syringe, or take some out then put it a container and continue that until it is empty? I assume I want to draw it into the syringe, let the tube drain off then work that way...
