So I have a Motive power bleeder that I've used on my D1. The cap adapter never fit great, it even leaked a few times. Screwing it on/off was always a pain because there's no swivel.

I'm coming up on a brake fluid flush for my 2015 Honda Odyssey and looked for the proper Motive adapter. It was a flat plate with chains and wing nuts, a one size fits all and the reviews on Amazon were crap. They pointed me towards Power Probe.

I bought the Honda one and Land Rover(European) one from ToolDiscounter.com for $92 shipped.

I received the Land Rover one today and its good quality. Its heavy in the hand. There is a lot of thread engagement with the adapter so I don't think it popping off or leaking will be an issue. The connection is a male automotive fitting and it swivels; no more looped and kinky bleeder line! All in all it seems like a quality part consistent with its price, about $33 before shipping. I haven't tried it yet but I have high hopes.

I used the Honda adapter today and its NICE! Worked perfectly, didn't leak a drop.

I measured the Land Rover Motive adapter against the Power Probe Rover adapter. Basically the Power Probe has .115" more thread engagement with the master cylinder. Just eyeballing it looks like a another threads worth. Wnough to eliminate leaks or the chance of it popping off when tightening it.
