    Default bx screen cleaning- caution

    i cleaned the screen on my bx25. be forewarned that all the fluid came pouring out. i had a clean pan ready so not really a mess but be ready for it. maybe my fill plug gasket is bad... i could hear the suction.

    So, Steve,

    Where was your tapered cork or tapered plug?

    Thought you were supposed to clean it during a fluid change.
    After the axle was empty.

    You can clean the screen anytime. Especially important, many believe, at the 40-50 hour mark, if not a little sooner. Just got to have a plan.

    Hmm, I thought the lost pint was from changing the filter without a full drain, not the screen. That sucker is at the bottom of the HST. Well, they do say experience is the best teacher

    your probably correct about the filter change.. lost about a pint on that one but the full amount on the screen clean. not to worry though.. i had a couple clean pans available and all went back in easy. also, no shavings on the screen and the fluid looked clean. no matter how much i study it seems i just have to do it. i would say the most difficult thing to remove on the 50hr was the engine filter. everything else went smooth.

    Get a 3 finger claw oil filer wrench and make removing the filter a snap.
