Re: Brake System Bleed
old way -
get a small box wrench that fits the bleeder slide it on
get a clear tube that fits the bleeder nipple , put one end in a large jar/ with some clean fluid in the bottom, hose must reach the bottom or at least be under fluid.. (so air doesn't get back in)
make sure brake res is full, and the cap is off, so you can add more fluid if needed so keep some handy.
have buddy sit in the drivers seat , and make sure you can talk back and forth .
have him slowly depress pedel and hold it down , you crack open the nipple,
and bubbles should come out. (you will see fluid come through the hose with small train of bubbles go by)
then you tighten nipple, say release, he lets the pedal come up.
you say go he presses, you loosen,........do this on all 4 corners.
becareful the res doesn't drain , or it will let air in, don't overfill the catch can either or reuse the fluid, or spill any on anything painted .
or...you could go to the auto part store/ sears and get a one man bleeder.
well that's my 1/2 cent lesson anyway.
