Applied some cheapo clear resin - doesn't stick well to that plastic bucket. then I bought some ribbed pool hose with an I.D. 1.25" and clamped it on.

under $20 all in.

Amazing how fast it drains when you give the throttle a little nudge forward. (neutral pin pulled of course)

I was a garden hose was ok kind of guy until - Tim Cant Repeat posted his video. the MC-OCD kicked in and I was compelled to make the bucket... then as a by product it was easy to run the RV Anti freeze into motor.
