Not sure were to post this, but here is a tip for getting oil in hard to reach places or to keep from dripping oil etc. on stuff. I had rinsed out a couple of tire slim bottles. They have the tappered spout and hose that attaches. I planned to use them to fill the rear tires with fluid, but it also worked great for filling the rear axle with oil or engine oil like on my MF7 where its hard to access.

I made a similar designed bottle. I took an old empty qt bottle of SAE30, found some 3/8 plastic line, drilled a hole in the lid that was just a little to small and forced the line in there.

I was afraid to squeeze hard, but it seems to work just fine. Never had the hose pop out yet.

I have a bottle similar but not quite as big, that had some kind of olive oil in it the wife gave me. Works great.

I use old style gear oil bottles that have the spout on them like that. Lucas engine oil treatment also comes in that style of bottle.
