My car came with this strange device screwed to the dash!
The aquaplane exhaust manifold covers the dipstick hole so this was fitted to overcome that problem, but it doesn't appear to work from my test in the kitchen.

I put water in it and connected it with a new hose and dipped the tube into a glass of water. pressing the bulb raises the water level in the sight glass, but it doesn't seem to change regardless of how far i dip the tube.
Anyone have any experience of this device, there was one for sale on ebay from the usa, and i copied the instruction sheet from the ebay description.

Regards
andrew
