    i was thinking of an idea for speed bleaders, if you were to get a good submesable pump (there tougher) with threaded inlet and outlet fit it to 1/4" hose about 8-10 feet, then split it useing good compression clamps and fit the other ends to you open bleeders. then bungee, or clamp the pump near the master and feed the outlet hose in to the reserve, turn it all on and (with plenty of extra brake fluid on hand) wate for no bubbles. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif Sound good? any one know why this would be stupit or what?
    P.S. a good pump to use would be 500-700 gph this would never quit and would be able to create a good amount of suction. the whole set up would be about 75 bucks at the most. Or should i just shut up? /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif let me know dave in canada

    yes it was...and yes it was...the mityvac is a good, fairly inexpensive tool if you dont have a son/daughter/wife/friend/etc to pump and hold the pedal for you...

    I bought a $14 vacuum pump from Harbor Freight to do my r134a conversion on my s10. With a few extra fittings (a valve and nipples), a jar, and some hose it will bleed brakes in a hurry. Only problem is that when you suck the fluid out the bleeder you often suck air around the threads of the bleeder so you will never have "no bubbles" comming out.
