FYI - Air Powered Brake Bleeder

Many have now gone to "Speed Bleeders" as a replacement for stock brake caliper bleeders. This allows one person the ability to change brake fluid and bleed air from the system.

I recently purchased an air powered brake bleeder without thinking it through first.

I found that the air powered "Power Brake Bleeder" does not develop enough "sucking power" to overcome the spring pressure of the check valve built into the "Speed" bleeders. It works great for removing the old fluid from the master cylinder reservoir, but thatís all.

Did you utilize it with "Speed Bleeders" instead of the OEM installed bleeders?
