Early engines had a built in pump that stayed screwed into this access point.

Buy the Moyer Marine repair manual. It shows how to do many maintenance procedures.

Hey everyone, don't let this one slip by, this is the correct answer (sorta, it's on the port side in my boat, under the fuel pump).

Combine that with this from Moyer:
Moyer Marine Online Store

and a simple hand pump like this
Amazon.com: Jabsco 34060-0130 Marine Engine Oil Drain Hand Pump (10.25" Long, 1.25" Diameter): Sports & Outdoors

Or this:
Liquivac Topside Oil Changer | Oil Extractors | Northern Tool + Equipment

or even this:
PUMP CRANK CASE OIL HAND OPERATED 102947

and you are done and cleaned up from your oil change in 10 minutes.
