Your "https://www.buymeacoffee.com/3dDave"-link does not work. You are missing out of a ton of money.

Thanks, but I have no expectations of a "ton". :-)

Nice funnel! Printed one and looks like it will work well. I do need to remix the nozzle so it fits my car better, just going to make it taper so it should be universal. Also, the threads are backwards on this, here it is “righty loosy, lefty tighty” and that just doesn’t have the same ring to it :-)

If you remix, please share! Thanks!

Re: Reversed Righty tighty, lefty loosey. That is actually intentional. I wanted to make sure that the "Thing" would never loosen when removing and leaving the adapter in the valve cover. With the reversed threads, removing will tighten tighten the threads. But ... I have caught myself more than once trying to assemble it assuming right hand threads. :-)

FYI: The next adapter will be for a Ford F150 V6. Stay tuned if that is your vehicle.

an adapter for the Mk7 golf would be great if you have the time!

mk7 adapter is available. It has some fragile edges so I really recommend printing it in nylon. I test printed and verified that it fits my wife's 2017 VW GTI, but I didn't do an oil change with it so I don't know if it'll leak. .

Great news, I'll give it a try asap!

BTW: There are clearance issues with the funnel on my wife's GTI. There is only one position that works. I'll take a pic to clarify, but the funnel slot after twisting it on is facing forward/back. Another option would be to cut some of the top off the funnel using a saw or slicer program.

Comments deleted.

That is a fantastic idea! I can’t wait to print!

Warning, the funnel itself is a 16 hour print.

what printer did you use?

if you are worried about it fitting on your printer, you could easily cut a few inches off the top w/o affecting its function. An earlier rev was actually that, but I decided to not to skimp on the height since my printer could handle it.

Thanks for the feedback!

This sir, is an awesome idea! Thanks!!
