    Simple Sportmaster flush cup idea...

    Pryo`s glove was a cheap good idea but the use what ya have side of me found something else... Realized an old set of Mickey ears and a couple of bungie cords which can hook to the lower mount and a stainless bolt all make for a Sportmaster flush kit and works on a CLE too...

    A 2 litre soda bottle cut and slit with a bungie works great too. A hose will screw right on to it.

    ok,but ive tried them all ,from factory type exact fit ,expensive the glove, to the cheepo adaptors & the very best is the noodle type for sporty or cle, they cost about $2 to $3 to make & even show a small amount of pressure on the water pressure gage when flushing.which none of the muffs or high$$ do on any lu.

    I have a Titus coned sportmaster, which renders the standard sportmaster flush cup un-usable due to the tip of the extended cone being too far from the intake holes. Decided to make my own "noodle" type. A quick trip to the hardware store, and as Gary said, $2-3 later...had myself a flusher that works excellent.

    I built mine using (1) female garden hose end, (2) 6-inch pieces of tubing (my modified sporty has two intakes...you might need a different number of pieces of tubing due to the number of intakes), and some epoxy.

    Simply stick the ends of the pieces of tubing into the female hose end epoxy them into place, taking care not to get the epoxy into end of the tubing. Give the epoxy time to set, and you're done.

    H2o, so ya just jam the tubes into the lower and turn on the water? The tubes don't pop right off?

    Sounds easy and cheap to make! PH
