Speed Bleeders

I don't know why there is all this effort on the pressure bleeder systems when this is so easy. The only thing to be concerned with is getting up to make sure the Master does not run down to low and suck in air.

However, you can drill a hole thru a spare Master cyclinder cap and fit a hose to a second larger brake fluid bottle and essentially pump the brakes without that problem. To this end, you can place a hose and empty bottle on the bleeder valve to accept the old fluid and air and completely flush out all the lines to your heart is content.

Anyone have any concerns with that approach? I have done it before on other vehicles with great ease and success.

Tony, thanks for the part number and approach to bleeding the brakes. I've ordered my pads and fluid, now all I need is the speed bleeders. Cheers -Dean
