yep, the whole facility is DIY except the tire changing, they have techs do that for you. It's awsome, I've been trying to get a job on base for some time now, then I can use it without having someone bring me as a guest.

Took no more then a min before it was full.
I guess you can apply this to the trans also.

other than needing 3 hands to work it, not a bad idea. could likely hook it up in similar fashion to an air compressor too.

Only need two hands...Good thing because Jesus only gave me two.
