I always wanted an easier means to remove liquid when I'm doing car maintenance. By this I mean;
-removing power steering fluid.
-removing transmission oil. https://www.instructables.com/id/Vacuum-Extraction-...
-bleeding brakes. https://www.instructables.com/id/Vacuum-Bleeding-th...
Here is how I made this very convenient tool in less than half hour.
Step 1: The Liquid Air Separator.
Step 2: Making an Output Connection Port.
Step 3: The Input or Suction Connection.
Step 4: The Vacuum Source.
Step 5: Testing!
Putting the tube into the bucket now, the water was sucked rapidly! The level shown in the pic was pulled in less than 10 seconds!
The top can easily be unscrewed for me to dump the liquid!
In reality the viscous liquids I intend to remove will take longer to extract but I'm anxious for field trials.
Step 6: Completion!
I'm pleased with the performance of my liquid catch bottle! To make it portable I put a carry strap secured via cable ties. I can't wait to bleed brakes now!
