OIL STRAINER
« on: April 03, 2007, 02:29:29 AM »

I did my first oil change today. It recomens to take the oil screen out, but the bolts were too tight and I stripped the head of the damn screw. How important is it to check the screen? Shouldn't the filter catch anything bad in the oil?

the oil strainer is at the bottom of the engine is very important to clean. It traps metal shavings that you don't want traveling through the engine to the filter... definately need to figure out how to get that bolt off. you may have to drill it if it's stripped bad  :?

The wire screen that covers the Oil Pick up in the Hyosung Engines should in most situations be left alone and not removed! The screen is the last stop for junk going to the Oil pump, the side you are looking at when you remove the oil drain plate is the OUT SIDE and any junk will be on the side you are looking at!

Clean the side you are looking at, a VACUMM work great. :)

THANK YOU.  I was pissing a fit with those screws.  

WHO IN THE HELL PUTS PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS ON THAT TIGHT?

I can see NO WAY to get it off without stripping the heads.  

Why did they NOT use bolts?  If I ever do get them off I will replace with something a socket can get off!  BUt I dont think I ever will as there is no way to get leverage down there with a screw.

They are not "Phillips Head"  :oops:

They are JIS or "METRIC" screws use the correct drivers , if you use the wrong tools you will have trouble. The screws also have been Locktighted as well.

Ummm.  I have looked up JIS Metric and what I found online are what appear to be a normal socket style bolt heads.  Can you provide a link to what you are talking about?

The two screws holding on my screen have a deffinate slotted cross patern with rounded over heads that look like AND fit my phillips driver.
