Default Craftsman Brake Bleeder Vacuum Test Kit - part help

I purchased a craftsman brake bleeder and I do like it but I am having issues with the cup and top lid sealing right. It really sucks as I have only used it 2-3 times but I does anyone know where I could just buy a replacement cup and lid? I do not have my receipt and I bought it last summer so I know its not warrantied.

I normally use a motive for cars but this one is great for motorcycles.

Second on the Craftsman kit sucking. I was beyond the warranty period to return and just threw mine in the trash.

I generally love most Craftsman stuff but this one was a turd.

That sure looks like a mityvac copy. If so this would probably work for you for 4 bucks, http://www.usatoolwarehouse.com/usat...Y-MVA6910.html. Also the mityvac site has a bunch of different accessories that might work for you, http://www.mityvac.com/pages/products_a.asp#MVA6005

I had same problem. I used Saran wrap (food wrap) at top to help seal the lid better.
