Default airlock troubles/help

Hey guys - i just ordered a airlock, the 3-piece airlock, its supposed to have a body piece, piston and vented cap. however my shipment only included the body piece.. mustve been a mistake. But, im wondering if i can salvage this airlock, perhaps i can put a blowoff tube into the body and the other end of the tube into a sanitized large cup, will that create the airlock ?

Yes, That's how I usually start with a blowoff tube. should be no problem, just jam a tube onto the stem in the middle.

They are like 99 cents at my LHBS. Do you have a homebrew shop near you? Maybe you can fashion something out of a sharpie cap or something... We homebrewers are pretty good MacGuyvers.

Just put a tube over the center and use it for your blow off setup.
