Pretty basic, I know, but one "trick" that may help out a bit.
Okay that will work too.. I hate getting all that oil on my headers ... then you gotta let it burn off.Kevin954 (or 954Kevin..... one of them) messaged me about that- he uses aluminum foil.. might be more "resilient" to absorbing the oil up =] But the cardboard does work fairly well.
The Haynes manual is good at adding some tricks and/or tips in sometimes... but not the Honda manual. I try to add any "real-world" tricks that I can when I do a "Doin' Stuff/How-to" vid.
HAH! I am not the only one that uses old oil for the new filter seal! As I said in the video, my dad showed me that when I was very very young and it just stuck. But, if you look at the front of the sealing surface it is nothing more than a plate. Nothing that directly goes into the engine or really affects anything (unless it leaks... then you are in trouble).Love the cardboard tip, I’ll do that next time, I also use a smear of the old oil around the oil filter seal
