    anyone have any
    good hand pump suggestions for the quart size redline gear oil bottles. Ive got a few different kinds but none of them fit well. I thought about trying to get empty clean gallon sized and transfer my quart sized to that?

    Also is it a big deal to use same pump for different oils (ie diff fluid the transfer case then manual transmission oil)? I know there isn't that much residual but still.

    I use the slippery Pete pump off Amazon with the redline gallon jugs. I bought one for each weight. Yes it’s probably overkill and I have excess oil sitting in my garage, but it’s much easier and cleaner. I gave up on qt bottles, they just aren’t easy to work with. The slipper Pete pumps do a good job of getting most of the oil out of the jugs too.

    Yes, I have that fluid pump (doesn't fit well on quart) as well but unfortunately I already have all of my oil in quart bottles not the big ones. Next time I'll definitely go with the gallon jugs. I am with you though as in having different pumps for different weights... overkill as well probably.

    Hoping someone has a good solution figured out for the quart sized redline.

    Thanks though

    Just buy the gallon jug for this time around and you can refill with all the quart bottles you have. A little more $$ upfront but you save yourself the headache.

    Good call I guess, didn't think about that for some reason... cheap probably. Thanks for your input

    Redline quart bottles have been a problem since day one. I'm convinced it's their secret plan to get people to buy the gallons lol

    Sounds about right. You would think they would make an adapter to sell for more income

    bump... hoping someone has a better solution other than purchasing more gear oil.
    Like many, I don't have a job right now
