Harry-

How do you get the end of the hose to stay put in the fill port on the g-box?

Thanks

I have a 915. I just stick the end in the hole.

I use a fluid pump attached to my compressor driven rachet wrench.

^^THIS^^

$86 seems steep for a little piece of plastic, but I guess it’s all in the function!

Are those quick-disconnects on the inlet/outlet hoses as well?

I wonder if the 5/16” hoses might be a bit small for the gear oil viscosity?? That said, if it flows nice there’s less internal volume to deal with after you’re finished!

Roll on, brothers...

Guys, here:

http://a.co/8RQDJpI

I use it to remove the oil from my sailboat engine. I have used the hand pump technique and it is awful. I imagine this would be much easier, and probably cheaper than some of those handpumps.

Yes, it's made of plastic, but seems well made to me. Those hoses have quick disconnects. No problem moving heavier gear oil. Great for also changing differential fluid and transmission fluid. You could also do a quick oil change thru the fill tube if you wanted to do that. Comes with storage case.
Fleabay has one slightly cheaper; also shows a used MAC tool. Type in "ratchet pump". I suppose you could use a 1/2" drill to power it if you didn't want to fire up the compressor, although I haven't tried it...

One last comment:
Whatever you use, construct a "hook" to hang the hose into the transaxle housing. See pic. I used a length of water supply pipe. First fill it with fine sand, then bend it to shape. The sand keeps it from collapsing onto itself while bending.

This is genius.

I just changed the gear oil this weekend. bought a garden sprayer from home depot, cut off the tip and with a hair dryer and a torx head screwdriver inserted in the tube, bent a 90 degree elbow. fill with oil, pump about 10 times, stick end in trans oil filler, squeeze the handle and lock into place. watch fluid level drop to approx 1 litre from 4 and as soon as it comes out. shut off
took about 30 mins and no mess. it's available at home depot for about $9. am getting a second one for trans fluid for mdx

Ha ha... thanks, but not my idea. All the garages use a similar arrangement to hold the hose in place.
Transfer time w/ the ratchet pump is about 3-4 minutes...

Talk about over-engineering a simple task
Considering this a job you might do every 5 years,
a good $20 suction gun is all you need.

... but when you have 6 cars and have to change out transmission, transaxle, differential & transfer case fluids it can be a real PITA unless you have good equipment. Had a nice metal suction gun that had to be refilled and was a leaky mess, so no thanks...

Every five years? No way. Especially those who track their cars like the original poster. It's a frequent oil change when you're getting the transmission very hot on a regular basis.

To each his own but I think a nice pump system, be it the manual garden sprayer type or an electric pump, is a great way to make the job much quicker, cleaner and easier.

Finially this was delivered to my local Northern Tool Store today and will be picking it up.
Will let everyone know how it goes.
Now just need to know what gear oil to keep in it at all times.

I don't know if this one has been mentioned but it is great. We track two cars and have a few others to maintain, this makes gear oil changes easier than motor oil. Highly recommend it.

Now, that's the cat's meow! Looks great with all the needed features.

Just picked this up yesterday. All complete even with a filler funnel. Looks nice and the hose is very flexible. Can't wait to try it out. It will need a air fitting and looks to work just like my oil catch container. Put air to it and then pump it out. The oil catch is awesome as i can fill any container with ease to then take to the recycle place.... Cheers...

Looks like you'll need a lift to use it...
