The backside technique is a good one. But I'm preaching to the master of backside here.
It was very interesting how the .025 would (slide right in ) and the .030 would just stop when it was set perfect.

Is it weird I kept thinking of Rawknee while doing the backside method?

79 #610 Winter Projects. Advise Needed

I did not get the brakes totally done tonight because I was still finishing the valve adjustment. The valves only took a few hours. Cleaning the old gasket material off the heads took twice as long.

But I got the calipers installed and ready to bleed. Time for the before and after!

Deez, looks great!

Are you familiar with how to pressure bleed the system using your air compressor (super fast, easy, one person operation and no need to do any pedal pumping at all)? If not, I can post some just the tip(s).

I have a vacuum bleeder and I had them install speed bleeders.
But I'm curious about the pressure bleed. Do you use the vent connection?

Yep to vent nip()ple . . . appropriate size hose connected to vent nip, from spout on simple air gun (easy to instantly shut off air by releasing the trigger, buttofcourse . . . keep trigger held down with rubber band), and use 15-17 psi from air compressor. I do one caliper at a time with both bleed nips open at same time - whole system from dry to fully purged of air in about 20 mins or so, with no pedal pump action at all.

If I did that on a more frequent basis, would have a large, supplemental res bottle for brake fluid, and then could bleed all the calipers at once.

I like it. Plus I don't have to buy anything.
My backside is getting sore right where my wallet is.

I hear that Kev is good at backside massage techniques!

Obviously, you have to keep an eye on the fluid level in the res - it moves pretty quickly, but not like a garden hose or anything. Plus, if you do accidentally let the res run dry (like I dumbly have on several different vehicles), the do-over is quick and easy (like Kevin).

Nice!

I actually learned that from the late Cole on this forum a long time ago . . . I have an old, 17' box truck, and when I did some major brake work to it, could not get all of the air out of the system over several months of trying everything (pedal pump, vacuum pump, gravity bleed, etc) - drove it during that time but pedal was never right, and by dumb luck, I read a post of his describing the air compressor pressure method and had a perfect pedal in my pedo-truck after about a 1/2 hour of work.

Yep, it's one of those things that when I first tried it (different than DeezNutzDerrick trying "it" ), was floored by how well it works and thought what a numbnutz I had been for using other, slow poke techniques for so many years.

You can do that with basically any vehicle's brake system - if res doesn't have a separate vent nipple (most don't), you just drill a hole in the brake res cap (or get a spare cap for that) and put a hose barb fitting on it.

I may or may not have celebrated too soon. So I climbed in the car to check the pedal. It goes about half way down before it gets firm. (I know, too easy) So I rechecked all the fittings and did another bleed. Feels the same. I'm used to the pedal being firm closer to the top on other cars. This should be the same way or did I forget how the brakes feel in this car?

Since you just put the calipers on, and the pistons were fully sunk in their bores, etc., you'll need to work the pedal some to get them positioned - may need to bleed some more to remove trapped air after that. Makes sense (sorry if that is one of those "duhhhhh, I already know that, things")???

Butt to your question - the pedal on these things is very solid, even at the top of the throw, when all air is out of the system.

Dammit. I knew that but was hopeful for the other.

And if you really want to speed the process up, switch out the air gun for your lips, or your bungholio, Deez! Of course, with the blowing power of either of those two things, you might send the caliper pistons right though your new rotors!
