How often do you change, i'm every 2 or 3 years or 15-20k miles. Never looks bad coming out.

Wow, I am a tool junkie, but that is overkill for me. I do an transmission oil change regularly. I hate it as much as Jack. It is a stinky, messy job. There is always so much waste in the hoses and pumps and mess to clean up. I would have to own a professional shop to want to own that one. It is nice, but overkill.

I take tire off. Zip tie tubing to make sure it stays in place. Secure funnel with zip tie to something stable like a ladder or something, then pour straight from the jug
while you drink a beer

If you do decide to use an electric pump, use this fitting to connect into the fill hole

Baja Ted style =
I found a used 12 vdc Toyota windshield washer tank & pump.
Fill wash fluid tank with gear oil, also used a curly small outlet hose from my dead HF air pump.
Add 12 volt battery and you can SEE the oil getting pumped out.

My plan was heat and gravity (and maybe substituting a cut-off 2L soda bottle in place of the funnel). From this thread:

Baja Ted FTW!

How long did that Toyota pump push that gear lube before it got real hot?!?

The older i get the less hassle I look for. I did the gravity for a long time, works on some cars not on others. Pump is good but a pain if it is old and it starts to come apart or the hose keeps coming off and oil goes everywhere. Will let everyone know how my oil dispenser works out. Had a $20 off coupon and it was on sale for $135. Hope to last a life time...

Big picture, my hope is to be able to pour 3 quarts into a bucket and pump it into the transaxle without spraying anything all over or having to do any hand pumping. For a once-a-year thing, I shouldn't complain about hand pumping. But... well, I am. (I'm lazy. I don't even want to have to take off the rear wheel.)

I'm willing to spend up to a hundred bucks to have something reliable I can take out and put away and not worry about. So here's the pump I'm thinking about:

https://www.pumpagents.com/JabscoPumps/12290-0274.html

I'll admit that part of the appeal of a heavy pump like this is that it can sit at the bottom of my apparatus and turn it into something that's difficult for me to accidentally kick over. Part of what I might be screwing up is whether room-temperature Swepco will have a viscosity issue with this pump.

The idea of the M22 fitting that could screw into the fill cap threads is interesting. But it also seems like more work than a hook and it doesn't look like it allows easy air venting. Maybe there's already venting in the case somewhere?

But a stout pump, an easy-to-access switch and a hooked end for a clear tube seems like it will do the trick for me. All in a form factor I can pick up and put away in a cabinet and forget about for 12 months.

What am I missing, other than good sense?

That pump is 700 bucks?

The M22 port fitting will work fine. The trans case has a vent port on the top "spine" of the trans. I figure if you gotta pull the fill plug out anyway, might as well screw in (by hand is all that's needed) a nice clean adapter fitting to fill it up. Only downside I see is that you can't monitor the amount you fill it. So you'd fill it up a little extra and then let the excess drain out the port when you remove the hose fitting?

I have been using a 12v "Oil change" pump, I think Harbor freight has them, mine is from JC Whitney (back in the day). Instead of pumping oil out of the engine through the dipstick housing (as it was intended for) you put the suction tube in the gear oil and the discharge hose into the transmission

Trans fluid pump ideas

Another option for those who have a trans fluid cooler pump . . .

Unscrew the out connection and attach clear plastic hose to bucket/milk jug and turn on cooler pump . . .

Then reattach out connection and unscrew in connection and attach hose to Swepco
milk jug of new fluid and turn on cooler pump . . .

Reattach inlet connection from cooler and done . . .


Permanent mounted pump ready to use for anytime . . . doesn't everyone have a trans cooler . . . JK . . .

Regards,

consider a diaphragm pump like this: https://www.grainger.com/product/DELAVAN-AG-PUMPS-Polypropylene-Diaphragm-Diaphragm-55NL39

$37.80 and 12VDC so you can run it off your car battery.

I use a 60 year old Sears paint pot to pump gear lube. Take your Sweepco one gallon jug & place in the paint container with the "fluid out" tube inserted in the gear lube jug. Fasten lid. Insert 20lbs. of air from a compressor. With 20lbs., the Sweepco flows pretty good, even at room temp. Best part is no clean up except for the tube submerged in the gear lube.

I'd post pictures but sadly I'm stuck with Windows 10.

I did this with a big funnel at the top that I hung from the ceiling. Works even without heating it if you give it time and the equipment will def. be reusable next time. Best about it it is setup quickly and gravity works on its own while you can work on other things.

That being said one question: I filled it by gravity until it started to run out of the filler oil. This is finde according to Wayne's book. - no need to 'pressure fill' beyond that point??

Nope. Just fill until it overflows and close up.
