    This is a difficult question. You are referring to a pail so I am assuming you are referring to a 5-gallon bucket or are you meaning the 1-gallon container. The reason this is so difficult to answer is that there are too many variables that could change the outcome of this. If oil is dripped off the pipe when it is removed then it is lost. If it is wiped off the thread after the cut then the same result occurs. The best way to gage whether or not the oil needs changed is to check the bottom of the sump of the machine. If there were a noticeable residue (pipe Scale) on the bottom of the sump then I would suggest changing the oil and cleaning out the sump with mineral spirits. I hope this is of some assistance.
