    I changed the oil the other day on my 32" Viking. I put the plastic hose on the drain valve and opened the valve. The oil came out
    so slow that it would have taken 2 days to drain. The oil was hot
    and in good shape not like tar. I finally applied air from my air compressor into the fill tube and forced the system dry. Is this a normal condition?

    Thanks for the post. I talked to the guys in the lab and they have seen a couple of slow valves as well. Send me a p/m to terry.eckert@exmark.com with the name of your dealership as well as your serial number. We may want to bring the drain back for evaluation.

    Also include the type and brand of oil you've been using, approximate hours and time since the last oil change. That way we can rule out some of the possible causes.
