Open filler cap, place suitable receptable underneath the oilsump,
remove drainplug and let drain.
If you have a oil change "kit" remove the mini sump and clean strainer,
remember one gasket on each side of strainer when assembling, do not
overtighten small acorn nuts.

Refill with 2.5L of oil, thats about it really..

J.

Please ask if anything seems uncertain, remember there is no such thing
as a "stupid" question when asked earnest.

No, an otherwise stock T1 engine from ca 1970 does not have another oil
filter, only the strainer which covers the oil pickup inlet in the sump.
