Re: brake question

Here is one of mine:

First off, throw the mighty vac in the dumpster. Secondly, I KNOW you have speed bleeders right? If not, then bleed BY HAND both lines at the calipers. Wait 5 minutes and repeat. Now wait five minutes and begin tapping the lines (with the handle of a large screwdriver) at the calipers and move up toward the junction. Tap the junction for about a minute, then wait another 5 minutes. Continue tapping the line until you reach the master cylinder banjo bolt. NOW crack the banjo at the master cylinder and very gently squeeze, and retighten. Repeat this procedure about 10 times.

Now rebleed the caliper bleeders (again by hand). I have found the mighty vac really adds air into the system and uses way more fluid than necessary to bleed the brakes. The hot setup (as I have mentioned in several posts) is to mount speed bleeders at the calipers, mount a bleeder banjo at the master cylinder (add a speed bleeder there too if you're feeling adventurous) and do the above procedure in about 1/5th of the time.
