If you look again at Fordem's photo, this is also a very easy DIY thing - you can take any household item that uses a similar plunger style delivery, and just heat a length of similar diameter plastic tubing on to the spout for the same type of delivery as the photo.

heat the gear oil first , you wont be sorry ! grin

my tune up page has some great hints on this.
1: heat
2: fill 5sp from engine bay using gravity
3: jack up rear (not axle) and rear is now easy city.

excerpt from my tune up page below

@autotune
You say your way is easy...
But did you have to remove the engine to do it?

Oh!
Now I get it!
It is like when "Nahm" Abrams removes the safety guards on the table sawr
while filming the New Yankee Workshop. It makes it easier for the audience
to see what is going on!

yes ( i lie)
hood off
and engine out. (got something against 4 hr labor pulling motor, HEHEHEHEHE)
but as you see its not too hard,to do standing , beats crawling .
and worse pumping cold fluid,up hill..

btw you can not fill tranny from end of extension housing

but with extension housing off, this will work for a fill up. with 2 inch body lift.

Remove the body? autotune would probably say that's the easy way to do things

We should start up "autotune facts", sorta like "Chuck Norris facts".

Actually you could remove rear carpet, remove one of the drain plugs in the rear pan and drop the hose through that toward filler plug in rear. But maybe gas tank would get in the way.

Either way, you would still have to crawl under twice, one to start , then again to button up..

My way, once,

Fluid in container pre pressurized,
then under we go, remove plugs, drain, install drain plug, fill (squeeze trigger), install fill plug...
no mess no fuss....

aqua's way is the best !!! of all !!, my posts are just for with out spray tank.
i have 3 of those thanks, 1 for brakes and other for fluids,

jack up the rear of the body, No not axle.
the body raises.
heat bottle in microwave oven (or hot pan of water)
the insert squeeze bottle nipple in the fill hole ( so easy not that body is raised)
and squirt, (no pumping needed )

the hand pump (in bottle ) really sucks and in cold , torture.

bex ill have to add a menu to that page
here is a quote off my page. Tuneups
Quote:

Gear Lube trick , Tranny:
I cheat and fill my 5sp this way. (heat it first) $3.50 /qt and change often.

Hints, Axles and gear boxes:
I jack up the rear bumper , not axle, and squirt in the hot lube, the easy way. (no hand pump) into the rear axle fill hole. Front is far more easy.
You can not fill the 5sp, via the shifter extension house (in place). "FSM even warns you in later years, what a mess...."
The filler plugs will need heat to loosen the factory caulk, and the filler needs to come of first , never the drain first.
The Transfer case has 2 plugs and is easy to lay hands on , keep car level, Pull the level check plug FIRST. Use heat.
