    I don't suppose you have a power bleeder or Phoenix bleeder machine laying around your shop do you :wink1: ??? I bought some speed bleeders, but one got stripped out from a crappy old caliper,.... A power bleeder would be soo much faster.. I've thought about trying the garden sprayer thing..

    do realize the qualifications of this job??? there are not many ASE certified pedal pumpers out there...

    use your speed bleeder on one side, then change it to the other side...

    Honestly. Any body with one working arm or leg and a pulse should qualify for that job. (girlfriend or brake bleeder :D)

    I used a piece of 1/4 plate, jb weld, 2.40 for a barbed NIPPLE. Oh yeah, took my wifes garden sprayer (free:D ). I have 2.40+tax in a pressure bleeder.

    moving my good speed bleeder around is a pretty dang good idea!! I guess I'll just find a good ASE certified pedal pumper with OSHA approved footgear :doah: :haha:

    My system was empty, and it took about 30minutes or so to bleed entire system.

    Anyone ever just used a valve core in a piece of plate and turned the pressure to their air hose way down and bleed it that way?

    that would not really work, you need some way to get new brake fluid in the master cylinder just using air would jsut make it worse

    could you not fill the master to the top and then just top it off when it gets low?

    i still thing you would run a large risk of just putting more air into the lines
