At first glance I thought "oh, another one man brake bleeder"

Then I looked closer... And bookmarked the page cause 70 bucks for that sure beats paying labor for the job at a brake shop (like 70-120/hr)

John-D: if you liked that one, you're gonna love this one, if you have a compressor: http://www.griotsgarage.com/pr...son+brake+bleeder.do

It is $30.00 cheaper, and no "pumping" ED

Dale;
Did you see my response ref sending the caliper to Speedbleeders? Inquiring minds want to know and we're taking off for the sunshine state in two weeks. Gotta get away from this rain and mist in Tennesssee and into the warmth. And snow is forecast for Saturday night along with 16 degree temps. I'll have some cheese along with my whine!
Bob

Coastie,

Take the caliper with you just in case. I have let them know it is a available. Last I heard the owner was checking on a thread roller to see what the cost would be to get the threads done or buy a roller for his equipment.

Dan,

I have one also.. But, it takes for ever to bleed the master cylinder and those long brake lines to the rear calipers when the container on holds a few oz's of fluid. Also, lots of pumping and open/close of the bleeder.

The one I ordered for test is air operated and has fairly large container to hold old fluid. It should just take a few minutes to do each wheel.

I will be doing a fluid change to see what a year of usage looks like compared to new fluid.

I got the 1 man bleeder and it looks pretty good. But, it does take a lot of air just by looking at the instructions... 75 PSI minimum.

To cold to test today... 33 degrees

Im retired so time doesnt matter to me. I still like oemtech's gravity method. The only thing I did diff was I used a manual oil pump to remove fluid from master cyl. Turkey baster seemed alittle messy. I wonder if the pump that uses the compressor could introduce air into the system by accident?
