Went to change the oil on my TO 20 for the first time. The center bolt in the plate on the bottom of the oil pan loosened and dropped about an inch and a half and stopped lowering. Further turning resulted in just turning. It tightened back up. How do you get to the screen to clean it? Any suggestions? Is it supposed to come all the way off? Thanks for the help.

I have the same trouble with my To 20. Thanks for posting the information...I removed the oil pan and found things installed wrong. Also found the #4 piston in the oil pan in about 100 pieces, but that is another story / another thread. The info was very helpful - Thank you for posting this.

Skyler, check out the diagram from the Parts Book in this thread:

Your oil filter tube (#58 in the diagram) may have come unscrewed, and it won't fit through the hole in the cover (#45).

Plus, the cover (#45) won't fit through the hole in the bottom of the pan.

Dropping the oil pan may be in your future, BUT: wait for some of the more experienced folks on the board to weigh in.

Skyler, it sounds like your screen and filter cover may have been installed upside down. Mine were, and I had to drop the oil pan to get the oil filter out.

It could also be that your oil filter tube is unscrewing, along with the bolt.

Can you post a picture?

Not that computer literate to post a picture. If I keep unscrewing it, will the tube come loose and drop the plate and then reinstall the tube? Do I just need to drop the oil pan? Will the pan come off if the screw is attached to the oil tube? My manual shows nothing, say nothing about it. Maybe I need a better manual. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Thanks for the info. The center came unscrewed and lowered enough to get ahold of it with vise grips and then I got the plate off. Screwed the center post back in and got it that way. Thanks for all the help.
