1100 Turbo Oil Change

How is everyone going about their oil changes on the 1100 turbo sleds. We have 2 that are ready for oil changes. The other night we drained the oil on one of them and what a mess we had on our hands. The first sled we drained the oil on is also in the process of a track swap. After removing the drain plug from the bottom of the block, chain case, and oil filter and finished draining the oil completely (we thought) we were amazed to see how much oil spilled out when we separated then chain case halves. Any suggestions to help minimize the mess and ensure all of the oil is out before I start the next sled?

1100 Turbo Oil change

Your chaincase has about 12 oz in it also. Next time you pull the cover take the bottom forward screw out of the cover prior to starting the track swap and it will drain out slowly.
Engine and chaincase are 2 seperate reservoirs.
I fahioned an aluminum trough for the oil tank itself. Loosen the plug almost out ,slide the trough under the plug and pull the plug. Very little cleanup.

Nice! The chain case is only coming apart on the one sled due to the track swap. The other is just going to be a simple oil change, i was just amazed at how much of a messy job that was and how much oil still remained in the sled. Thanks!

Sled: 2012 f100 turbo anniversary
i took a used water bottle cut a 3/4 hole on the side of it near the bottom put some rags down and then when you pull the tank plug push the bottle with the hole up .. theres a bit of a nipple on the tank this will pop into the hole on the bottle and the oil will enter the bottle and you can direct the top of the bottle through the running board into the drain pan ...then just throw out the bottle and the mess isn't too bad .

Take the inner cooler and lift it up out of the way this will help greatly to be able to r&r the filter.Mine was tourqued on way too much from factory specs.

heres what I wa taught at the Arctic Cat Service Update seminar. Im not sure how I can upload the pics so I'll be as descriptive as possible
to begin you will need the side covers and the Pod removed. Some steps I've added as well to help
1) Remove engine drain cover(oval shaped piece under engine) with a T20 torx bit
2) Remove drain plug from engine and allow to drain
3) Loosen oil bleed screw located on top of engine case to allow oil to fully drain out.
4) Remove exhaust resonator and the screw holding the belly pan at the footwell. it will be a torx. Using a 14mm wrench loosen but dont remove the drain plug for the oil tank
5)to avoid a mess cut the front side out of an empty 1qt oil container to use as a funnel. Place funnel under tank and remove plug to drain oil out through the resonator hole into a pan.
6)to remove the oil filter, first remove the bottom charge tube from the intercooler to gain fair access to filter. then using a long extension with a swivel and a filter wrench remove the filter. install new filter and re-install charge tube.
7) Install both drain plugs and torque to 16ft/lbs and re-install drain cover under engine plug.
8) Tighten oil pump bleed screw and pour 3quarts into oil tank. Loosen oil bleed screw to purge air from oil pump hose. When air can no longer be heard. tighten bleed screw to 96in/lbs.
9)with key on check to see if oil pressure light illuminates. then run engine to make sure oil pressure light goes out. run engine for one minute and fill oil tank to center of sight glass.

There it is. I hope it helps
