Just finishing my 3rd pump rub fix, I grab my fluid transfer pump, and start hand pumping in the oil, and it starts leaking all over the place, there has got to be a better way...
So after rummaging through some stuff, I come up with this cheap fix, hope it helps you the way it helped me.


Using a empty clear beer growler, punch two holes on the lid. One for the transfer hose, the other for a air gun nozzle. I used electrical tape to provide some seal. Comes out looking like this.








Set your air regulator down to about 10psi or so, use quick short burst. The oil moves quick, I found out the hard way, when it started overflowing. Make sure the transfer hose sits at the bottom, so that you get oil, not air. Works great for filling differentials and transfer cases, no more leaky hand pumps that only last 2 days.

Great idea! I've got way more growlers than I can fill on a regular basis. :drink
