I also have access to an oil suction remover from a mechanic friend, would this be a preferred route after the front sump?
I don't think that the suction method will work, since we do not have a dipstick. The suction method will use the tube where the dipstick would go. That way you would slide the rubber hose in the tube down to the crank case.
