Fuel filter and TMC 60M tranny oil changed

Middle of November 2015 - At private slip in Nuevo Vallarta in Banderas Bay, Mexico


From the TMC 60M manual.



A couple of years ago a person at a swap meet just gave me this old pump. I thought because they are nice pumps we may use it. The time has come to use it but after looking at it more I see it is dirty and needs some repairing. We have a good but less expensive pump that does the job and that job only needs to be done at certain engine hours then it would need changing. Well we like to do it each year andt by the Technodrive TMC 60M transmission (twindisc.it/index.php) manual it would be every 500 hours or each year, which ever comes first. It is easy enough to do more often. So we tossed the old pump. The water line rises a bit more :)

Reliable (comparatively inexpensive) pump.

After pumping out the ATF from the transmission.

We are pumping the old ATF/3 fluid out from the dip stick.

We also put a little ATF/3 fluid around the runner on the dip stick to help it slide in and out for reading. The bolt on top of the Technodrive TMC 60M is where we fill the transmission.

UP, up and away!

All done and did not make a mess! A small bucket and yogurt container.

ATF/3  fluid here in Mexico.

The new ATF fluid is so clear it is near impossible to see on the dip stick. 
The trick I learned is to put the dip stick on a paper towel to read the level.

We use this wrench for fuel filter. It almost went to the marine swap meet 
at La Cruz. I forgot we used it and had to dig it out of the bag of swap meet stuff!

Bleeder nut.

Bleeder pump, push the lever down and up etc.

We could have used the electric pump we installed to bleed the Beta 38 hp 
but we have more control with the little hand pump. 

We back filled the fuel filter so there was not much air to pump out. This makes less of a mess.

We got the diesel to back fill the Baldwin BF940 fuel filter 
from draining a Racor filter into a yogurt container.

We drained out a Racor filter into a yogurt container (great for this work) 
and then poured that diesel through a paint filter just to make sure it was pure.
