Just so ya know, I ain't an expert by no means on this stuff. This happens to be something I need to do as well. I'm just repeating what I've read in these threads, and what I've found in the manual.
Which line is the strainier in? There are several hoses so I've no idea what does what besides the obvious return line that runs under the engine.
