Quality control poor - but once fixed, worked great
, 8 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Silverline 104616 Oil and Fluid Extractor Pump, 4 L (Tools & Hardware)
Picked this up for emptying some diff casings that didn't have drain points.
At first I figured it was completely useless, because it barely developed any vacuum whatsoever and would have taken several hours to have drained 2 litres of diff oil!
However, on inspection, turns out the flap within the pump that acts as a valve was incorrectly fitted and was not sealing upon pumping. A quick removal of the circlip, re-seat of the flap properly, and the item was working 100% as expected - and did the job fine.
Clearly not much quality control going on at Silverline but provided you're happy to do a bit of fiddling (if you get a bad one), then worth the money.
