Transfer assembly fluid change
What have you guys found that works well to get the hypoid gear oil into the transfer assembly during a change?
I normally just squish the bottle as best I can and can fill it ok, but I need to start with a full quart bottle to do so. I find much past 1/2 quart is hard to get out of the bottle in that position.
So I just make sure I always have a full bottle before I begin and pour the remainder of one change into the bottle of another so as to have another full bottle for my next change.. ie, 3 changes out of 2 bottles, which leaves me with 1/2 quart I can't use until I get another bottle.
Now this is cheap fluid, so no big deal, but it would be nice to be able to drain the bottle and get two changes out of one quart container, if possible.
So what do you guys use for this? Turkey baster?
