Prochem Apex with a 408 Tri-Flow.
How much oil does it take and I was considering sucking out the oil through the breathing port on top.
Any suggestions would help.
Thanks

I think it is pretty tough to get any type of suction hose down through the vent pipe hole to reach the bottom. Better to just remove the bottom drain plug to fully drain it and refill it to the sight gauge window. Should be less than 1 quart to refill.
Hopefully you don't have a truckmount that was built with a unacceptable drain plug.
