First, I tried unsucessfully rebooting my old ones with the tranny funnel method, and I hear it's tricky even with the special tool. The Chinese axles just don't have a very good reputation.

Happy Motoring, Mark
In the Thread below I guess I did not use the Pneumatic Tool properly but the finished the job with the Cone part of the Cone Tool. I am guessing the Cone is superior to the Funnel and cost around $30.
