Since the oil system is drained and I'm finishing the cooler I can't start it :( I can't wait. However I'm having issues with that mytee waste tank. I'm rapidly developing a not so favorable opinion of it. More on it later.

I just couldn't stomach that huge red handled valve for the blower intake lube line so in a fit of complete OCD I took the angle grinder and cut it down then painted it black. I will coat the handle again with tool handle dip. It's all in the details :)

Thanks that is a very nice compliment. All my purpose of this is to strike ideas and have us all not be afraid to wrench on our machines.

I would agree with you, however there are usually 2 things that make issues for cars, technicians and customers.

I HATE my mytee waste tank, curse myself every time I look at it. I see it being used for target practice in the not too distant future. Let me know if you find a glue that sticks to it Joe

Be a little more helpful if you told us what the problem is with these tanks.
I'm working on it currently along with photos :) Johnny can you throw this thread to the mytee guy he might want to get involved.

My issue is the main seals around the three lid covers they plain don't seal. The tops of the tanks are not flat so it provides a very uneven sealing surface.

What was the issue with yours? I have found most things great the drain was a simple setup, brackets very heavy duty. Just the lids blow. It needs very thick neoprene donut seals under them to be effective.

Exactly the Rotomolded plastic looks warped or something. Darn it it's too dark to get pics tonight. If mytee gave you a few extra seals you could make it work by stacking a few on top of each other, I will make a video tomorrow.

If that's all you need I can already tell you that John LaBarbera will probably overnight those things too you. That's how gets down. ;)

Just for the record John sent me the replacement mytee lynx hosecuffs and they are excellent! I just love lynx cuffs. Thanks John also for the excellent customer service. I'm not here to bash any company but I will point put any issues I come across that's only far to share. If anyone else has a issue also they can see how I fixed the issue or god forbid see that maybe it was a defect. After all The forum is a place for ideas and guidance.

Okay, but just remember, they're called Cuff-Lynx. ;)
