Default Volvo ec35 oil change

Hi All

I am about to change oil in machine engine but have noticed there is two oil fill caps? One cap is on top of engine and the 2nd is half way down engine on the right hand of casing, why is there two and does it matter which fill point i use?

Cheers

Is it a Perkins 3cyl?

I think they only put two fillers on so it will suit multi applications/fitments?

Fill at wichever point is easiest, don't think it makes any difference? But maybe I'm wrong?

Got a feeling some of the small Volvo lumps were a Perkins in disguise? May be wrong though?

I'm sure it won't make any odds which cap you fill it from, as
long as its in there

Yep as said, the engine is fitted to a lot of machines and ether cap will do! I think the Volvo ec35 has a Mitsubishi engine

That is a Yanmar engine, 2 places to fill oil depends on how the engine is mounted in some applications there you cant reach one of them.

Edit, thought there said EC35C.

Volvo seem to like painting other engine makes in Volvo green, in their mini's and midi's, and giving them a Volvo engine code (to really confuse).

For example the current ECR50, 58 and 88D all use basically the same 4-cylinder Kubota V2607 engine, in various states of tune. They call it a Volvo D2.6 engine
