I really enjoy my Hoover 704, but one thing that has always ticked me off about it is the in inner C bag. It constantly needs to be replaced and holds very little. I have two pets, so the air flow and be blocked very easily with hair blocking the tube.

I've heard that Eureka 'A' bags can convert a machine like this to top fill, but no madder how hard I look at Goodwills or Online I can't find any!

So what I'm asking is there any way to convert a bottom fill Hoover to top-fill? I don't really care if it's like A bag Convertibles or like F&G bags Eurekas.

The stock bag on a 704 is too small to hold a Eureka F&G without pinching the fill tube on it. It's possible to use an F&G bag on a newer Convertible which has the wider outer bag. Converting an older Convertible to use Hoover Type-A bags is relatively easy though. You'll need to get a new outer bag as well as a new bellows and fill tube which are still available. Try checking eBay.

Oh thanks. Not meaning to sound stupid, but I'm now what you mean by bellows. If I find an A outer bag I get it for sure.

The bellows is simply the part which connects the bag ring to the fill tube. Hope that helps.

If you swap the fill-tube, a Dirt Devil type U bag will fit onto the type A tube and fit inside the narrow outer bag.
