It seems as though this topic is spread amongst several chassis specific forums and none of them seemed to discuss what I was after.
I'm going to purchase or construct an pneumatic oil extractor in the near future. It needs to have a large capacity 8+ gallons (bigger the better) and use either shop air, or have an electric pump. I've used several of the venturi type extractors and they work alright but also like to leak often and take longer than piston/diaphragm pumps. The design seems really simple for the most part with a large, dual ported tank, with a pump, so DIY seems likely if a suitable pre-fab product can't be found.
Does anyone have any manufactures and models of extractors they've used? Anyone made their own this large? I've had a hard time trying to source these extractors so any links or contacts would be great. Any other technicians out there with input?
