    Gonna get a set of speed bleeders - Earl's Solo Bleeders

    I have D60 up front D44 rear (14BFF w/ Discs)

    Which size do I need?

    I assumed 3/8 24

    Also a quick description of how they are used would be appreciated

    Thank you!

    3/8-24 is correct. The d44 calipers use the 1" long one and the 60's use the longer one thats like 1.5" or something...

    You open the farthest one from the MC about 1/2 turn and get in and pump your brakes slowly about 5 times. Get out and close the bleeder and top off the MC and then do the next one, same thing as before. Make sure you keep the MC topped off.
