Down the drain

A hose clamp allows the position of the drainage pipe to be altered to suit different rim/hub set-ups.

No doubt mechanics have several tricks for draining the oil from front hubs ... and here’s another. This one uses a 500mm length of 150mm diameter drainage pipe, which is attached to the wheel rim by a pair of 75mm magnets. One end of the pipe has been cut to allow the oil to flow into the pipe. An extra bit welded on to the pipe provides somewhere to store the level plug. Clever stuff.
