BPD Remote Cooler, Oil Change Question?

I am running the BPD remote oil cooler kit using the stock oil filter.
My question is for the guys running this kit, how are you completly draining your oil? Or are you just draining what you can out of the pan and leaving the rest in the cooler?
I know on my last oil change which was the first one since my install, I did not get all of what I initially put in back out during draining.
Has anyone installed a drain valve to aid in this?
Any other options other than taking the lines apart each oil change?
Would a bypass filter help with this if I can't efficently get everything out each change?

I know my Bobcats hydraulic system is like this and I only can drain from the plug. The rest stays in the system.

Thanks in advance.

Just drain and replace all filters. You'll be good to good! Don't forget the new oil too

I added the BPD bypass filter system with 2 micron Amsoil filter to go with the BPD remote oil cooler. One of the reasons is that you can never get all of the oil out of the motor during an oil change. It also keeps the oil much cleaner than with just a full flow filter.

I don't think you want to fully purge the cooler and lines of oil as you would have a brief period of "dry start" unless you re-primed the system with new oil afterward. That's also why BPD recommends filling the new filter with oil before installing.

Well you could get real anal about purging all the old oil out of your system like a buddy of mine does. He has an electric oil pre and post lube pump that he also uses to change his oil with so he doesn't have to crawl under his truck. He just hooks up a hose from the suction side of his pump to a pail of new oil and runs the electric oil pump about a minute and then he pumps his sump empty again. LOL like I said, he's a "little" anal about these things. I have the same electric oil pump but I just use it for turbo cooling after I shut my motor off.

So, dump what you can. Worry about the rest later.
