Tesla said:What is the best way of bleeding the break system? (For a newbie with few tools)
Lopez, thanks for clearing up my question
Either a vaccum bleed off the engine, can make one yourself out of a glass jar, but maybe that's for another thread.
The way to do it is with a mate, one on the pedal, one on the brakes. Press the pedal to build up pressure then open the nippled and press half way down, before you lift the pedal get whoever is on the brakes to close the nipple. This stops air being drawn back through the thread on the nipples, repeat this process until the fluid is nice and clear and bubble free.
You press the pedal only half way as in normal operation you never use the full length of the pedal, this part of the master cylinder bore is therefore hardly used and can has slight corrosion which will wreck the master cylinder seal.
