If not I'll try to rig something up from the marine section of Home Depot.
You can get the smaller one from WM online. I expect you will come out $ ahead if you don't need the larger one....

I love my Reverso pump. Turn it on, pump out the oil. Change the filter, reverse the pump and refill the engine. Its plumbed to both the main engine ang genset.

another vote for Moeller

I tried the West Marine version but it is poorly made. I struggled for 30 minutes to get 1 litre (quart to the rest of the world) out and the second time I tried to use it I could not get anything out. I suspect the pump actually broke the first time I used it. It would generate a little vacuum when pumping but would not sustain it when I stopped. I was sufficiently annoyed that I seriously considered chucking it in the dumpster on my way out of the marina. I took it back to West Marine and exchanged it for the Moeller pump. (they stood by their word and accepted it without question - despite it being obviously used) The Moeller pump worked like a charm, 10 strokes and the oil came right out in a few minutes. This unit is very well made, you can see and feel the difference if you handle them both. (I have no vested interest in either Moeller or West Marine.)

That's nice, but I find the whole toe-wiggling thing a bit disturbing.
