I found that 'da wifes turkey baster is an excellent way to fill the neck on my '07 64o Adventure with oil......

"Uumm...no Hon....I haven't seen your turkey baster...don't even know what one looks like."

Ah, interesting thread. I made a house call concerning a BMW running
on one cylinder. On finding corroded injector terminals, I asked the owner
for a toothbrush to use with contact cleaner. He comes back with his wife's
tooth brush. Don't know if there's a connection, but they are no longer married.

Seriously - a 50cc syringe is really handy for these jobs. Every vet carries them and will sell you one for $5 or less. Cheaper than sleeping on the sofa for a night.

I once power washed a salvage yard-sourced aluminum wheel for a 4x4 in a dishwasher. I was single at the time.

Tractor Supply Co sells syringes. Tiny ones to big'uns. Needles are separate. Look near the horse medicine. Pretty handy in the shop. I use the tiny ones with a needle to squirt cable lube into my cables. The large ones i use with a length of tubing for reverse bleeding the brakes.

Don't you guys have dollar stores where you live? Turkey Baster, large syringe, squirt bottles, whatever you need, a buck each.



Edit: I just remembered Americans don't buy anything made in China

dishwashers are actually awesome parts washers, provided you hose the worst of it off first so it doesnt harm the machine

I feel your pain. I caught hell for using the serrated bread knife to trim batt insulation for some renovations I'm doing.
