    Has anyone seen or made a pressurized gear oil container?
    I was thinging an airtight 2.5 gallon can, drill for a tire valve and put a hose on it with a valve.
    Pump it up to about 20psi with the tire valve and then just open the valve to fill my diffs and transfercase.

    friend of mine use to work for coke. he got 8-10 old suryip bottles. aluminum with black tops. he also got hose ends. he uses them all the time. all his fluids are in them . fyi the 20psi on gear oil might not be quite what you need to move thick gear oil.

    I've been using a garden sprayer, similar to the one I used for my brake pressure bleeder, with good results. Hose-clamped a piece of ~3/8" clear plastic hose on the the thing, and just pump it up by hand.

    I bought one of those pumps that fits on the gallon bottles.
    It works ok, works better if the gear oil is warmed by the sun all day, but I need to build something and this got the nod for now. That and a new welding cart with pnuematic tires.
