1PC 4.88” [125mm] Straight Tube - [B]
2PC 2” [50mm] 45° Tubes - [C]

SET-UP
• After the cooling system is sufficiently cooled, remove the radiator or cooling system reservoir cap.
• Select the Adapter Cap [D]configuration that most closely matches the cap removed in the previous step.
• Securely attach the selected Adaptor Cap to the radiator or cooling system reservoir and latch in place of the permanent cap (FIG 1).
• The Funnel Assembly MUST be kept level to operate properly. If the filler neck is at an angle or in a difficult to reach location, determine which combination of accessory 45° elbows and or extension pipe is needed to adequately reach it (FIGS 2 & 3).

 
• Once the combination of Funnel, Adapter Cap and Accessories is determined, press them all together firmly to avoid leaks. NOTE: if the Extension Tube[B] is required, also use the Bleed Tube Extension [E] by pressing it firmly and securely onto the brass nipple of the Center Stem (FIG 4).

• Pull up the Center Stem of the Funnel Assembly to open the seal at the bottom of the Funnel then pour in the desired amount of coolant. Continue to fill until the Funnel is 1/3 full (FIG 5).
• Start engine and allow to reach operating temperature.
 
GRAVITY BLEED METHOD
• Keep the Center Stem in the UP position to allow the free release of trapped air as it bubbles up through the coolant in the Funnel. Let the engine run at an idle only. DO NOT run above idle as this can cause a dangerous surge of hot coolant.
• Add coolant to Funnel while engine is running if required.
• When all bubbling stops, shut off engine, push the Center Stem down firmly to close the seal at the bottom of the Funnel Assembly.
• Unlatch Adapter Cap from radiator or cooling system reservoir filler neck and carefully pull the entire assembly away and pour any coolant remaining in Funnel Assembly into a suitable coolant jug.
• Replace original cap on radiator or cooling system reservoir filler neck.
PRESSURE METHOD
• Push the Center Stem downward firmly to engage the seal at the bottom of the Funnel Assembly. Let the engine run at an idle only. DO NOT run above idle as this can cause a dangerous surge of hot coolant.
• Allow bleed air to escape through the clear tube at the center of the Center Stem
• When all air escape stops, shut off engine, keep the Center Stem closed at the bottom of the Funnel Assembly.
• Unlatch Adapter Cap form radiator or cooling system reservoir filler neck and carefully pull the entire assembly away. Pour any coolant remaining in the Funnel into a suitable coolant jug.
• Replace original cap on radiator or cooling system reservoir filler neck.
