what size speed bleeders do i need for a 85 k5 with 10 bolts
I got mine at pepboys in the help section. part number is 12702. The thread size is M10x1.5 overall length:33mm
Got mine the same place----the book will tell you what you need if different.
how exactly do those things work? how does one go about bleeding brakes with them?
they're used by cracking them open and pumping the brake pedal like normal. the spring loaded ball bearing prevents air from going back in. basically each pedal push expels air and the ball bearing prevents it from entering.
thanks guys i finally drove my k5 for the first time in 2 mounths and $1000 dollars later. yeah the speed bleeders work great. i had taken the orig out and lost them so i didnt have one to compare size. But i love my new rearend just got to break it in so i can really play with it. o yeah and put the rear shocks on. went over some rail road tracks and the back tires bounced off the ground a couple times.
its basically a check valve
