Time to change the oil. Hence I take this opportunity to check the oil pump sprocket.

That little cylinder (hydrogen gas for the suspension) on the right side is going to get in the way so I will half remove it.

Apparently there are two pathes to get the oil back into the pump, I will have to check my books to sort that out.

That fucking hose turns as I screw. I obviously do not like what I am doing but I have no spare hose.

New oil filter, twice the lenght of the original : more fresh oil available for the motor.

Ah, the bolt for the primary oil transmission is there. Bugger, I’ll do it another time.
