What is the size of the suction hose on the 5430? I tried using the 5431 to pump oil from the dipstick of my Kohler CH730 engine but the suction tube was too wide and wouldn't fit. Is the suction tube on the 5430 narrower?
The suction tubes are the same size for both model extractors.

Are spare tanks (bottles) available for this kit?
If gas AND oil are removed into the same bottle (at different times, of course) the oil and gas would be contaminated by any residue in the bottle and fluids couldn't be reused in the engine.
I imagine that either 1) the tubing, pump and bottle would have to be cleaned everytime before switching fluids or 2) two separate, dedicated kits would be required.
Else, how would you do it?
There are not spare tanks available for this kit. The unit would need to be cleaned between uses or you would need two separate units. However, typically this is being used when the oil and fuel needs to be changed and the fluids are not put back into the engine.

Is it only for Briggs & Stratton engines?
I have a Briggs & Stratton engine (Intek Pro 8.25) on my lawn mower and a Honda engine (GCV160) on my pressure washer. I'd like to use this kit on both of them--will it work on the Honda engine?
The oil removal kit can be used on any small engine name brand.

Yes these can be used for the same purpose. The part 5431web is larger and contains a funnel and a shut off clip also. Otherwise they are the same.

1. Where is the Oil Remal Kit (5430WEB) manufactured? 2. Is it sold in Toronto, Ontario, Canada & by whom please?
Need to know where kit manufactured because of import duties for products not manufactured in the United States.
Would prefer to buy from a store as opposed to online purchase.
This item is purchased from a vendor, then packaged and sold as with the Briggs & Stratton name on it. We do not have information on where it was manufactured. You can purchase this through any local Briggs & Stratton service dealer in you area. Here is a link to our dealer locator: http://bit.ly/opCQiP

What method does it use to drain the oil? Pump or drain on mower?
My current walk behind mower drains underneath the carriage. Its a pain in the neck. Have to place mower on its side or on blocks and drain into a pan.
The oil removal kit uses a pump to remove the oil from your engine. A tube is placed into the oil reservoir and then you will hand pump the oil out.
