Re: Bleeding Brakes?

Correct. As long as you have an air-tight seal between the hose and the nipple, all is well.

Re: Bleeding Brakes?

Make sure you don't buy a hand-pump and lose the o-ring from the catch cup, rendering the whole system useless. And if that does happen make sure you don't try to use silicone to seal the cup, ruining it and making it impossible to return it to the store. Because if that happens you will end up just bleeding by hand with an old pickle jar, and you will have spent thirty five dollars for a foot of clear tubing.

That's my advice.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Bleeding Brakes?

Doesn't the kit come with instructions?

BTW: Speed Bleeders rock - do a google search for them.

Re: Bleeding Brakes?

Re-read it slowly yourself. I understand how he happed to end up with non returnable product rendering it to a useful foot of plastic hose. (perhaps the pump came with a 2 foot piece of tubing)

Put that in your pickle jar next to the extra o-rings so that you don't have to use the silicone you had saved for another occasion.
