And still way easier imho. What do you think Les?
I think they make an "interesting" point. However, I've been bleeding brakes in old cars for 30 something years and never had one that failed after a bleeding. No offense, but I would file this under the "theoretical" and "interesting" categories.

What I do know is that you just put a hose on the speed bleeder into a jar, crack it open and pump it to feed fluid into the jar, close bleeder, and move to the next one. You do need to watch the reservoir. Makes a fluid change/refresh super easy. Crack it open, pump it till you get good looking fluid, close and move to the next one.
