Engine Block Coolant Drain Tube

Post by ARCHINSTL » Tue Jul 15, 2014 1:12 am

When I changed the AF this time, for a lark, I thought a bit. :shock:
Previous draining of the engine drain cock resulted in a mess and also impossible to catch the AF for disposal.
I tried hoses in the past with no success.
So - I had quite a bit of this tubing left over from the bike shop (not used for cable organization, its intended purpose) and the lightbulb went off! :idea:

It worked great, but it does have to be held in place as it tended to slip.
This should be available by the foot at computer supply places - or possibly electrical supply houses as well. Grainger carries it, but you might have to buy 10'.
