That should be effective.

Soldering iron is great for identifying fuel leaks in hard to reach places

Butane would be the most effective in mopping up the surplus fuel before you commence work.

In the "Robert Duvall in Apocalypse Now" sense of "mopping up"? :lol:

Changed the oil & filter, but more significantly, cut open the following filters:-

(a) Subaru Genuine (used);

(b) Ryco Z436 (new - same external size of genuine filter - 66 mm tall); and

(c) Ryco 411ST (new - same threaded end but 85mm tall, plus synthetic filter media).

I'll post photos and info/comments in a different thread in due course, but the short version is that the bypass valve pressure on the genuine filter is significantly higher pressure than the Ryco filters.
