Fellows,

Can anybody explain the installation (or cleaning) of the engine's oil screen?? Reference here is to the approx. 1 1/2" x 2" fine metallic mesh screen which seems to be installed @ bottom of cases.

I'm not even aware of just what function it provides or if a dirty screen would affect the lube system??

Any info would be appreciated.
Steve

It's there to keep any object large enough to jam the oil pump from getting in. A non functioning oil pump will cause widespread and severe engine damage very quickly. Do regular oil changes and you won't need to give the screen a second thought.
