    This is a fill cap from a gear lube bottle. and about 1.5'-2' of clear rubber hose.
    the cap can be used on any quart bottle.
    You can use safety wire, bailing wire or a zip tie to secure the hose to the cap.
    The hose is still small enough to fit in the fill plug of the trans and rear diff. and the hose also allows you to hold the bottle upside down even though you cant get it high enough to shoot it straight in.
    The gear oil is a little thick. But it still works.

    Nice, I have a small hand pump that fits into a gear oil bottle, works but not as well as intended.....I like this idea.

    I always break those little hand pumps or they don't work.

    I use something similar to this, works great!

    i always make it a two person job. I stay under the car and hold the hose and monitor the full-plug. Then a buddy stands outside the car and squeezes the bottle.


    never did the wire-tie around the tip, tho. good idea! Our hose always fell off... still a mess, just a smaller mess. lol.

    I had a cheap handpump, I think it was like 3$ at autozone.. barely pumped. I like this idea though!

    Mine pumped, but it didn't thread onto the bottle, just stuck in there. Was just really awkward.....
