    Most autoparts stores have some really nifty pumps that screw on to oil jugs (Motor oil, ATF, rear-end grease, etc.)

    on pickups you can use a piece of 3/8 hose on the end of a funnel..and run it between the bed and cab down into the tcase...

    I did the same thing but different /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    If you use ATF heres what I did. I bought the blue funnel at Autozone with the flex tube However, I take the flex tube off the funnel and stick it right on the neck of the quart fluid bottle. While holding bottle upright, Insert tip on tube in xfr case. then lift the bottle up and lay it on its side against the bottom floor of the truck. It will flow in. You can also squeeze the bottle gently and force the fluid in a little faster. Works and little mess. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I went down to the hardware store got a small funnel and a see through hose, which makes the process a little easier. I got the hose the right size so it would screw into the hole. Poor slowly and when the ATF stops flowing take of the funnel, put it into the bottle and lower the hose to the funnel and pour the excess into the bottle, works damn slick /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I don't think a fish tank pump would be able to move tranny fluid... lot thicker then water but you never know.

    I used an old piece of hose that i cleaned out and a mini funnel i had laying around. worked great... just takes a while to fill it all up cause you got to pour real slow.
