I think I remember somebody posting the info either in here or in the brakes forum. Perhaps over a year ago. I assume a search has resulted in nothing than more questions? Hmmm....
How are you supposed to see that there is no more bubbles if you're in the car pumping the brake pedal?The new and improved way
Introducing SPEED BLEEDER®, the patented bleeder screw with the built-in check valve. <font color="red">It is truly a one-person bleeder screw.</font> Once installed, it becomes a permanent part of the brake system. When it is time to bleed your brakes, you loosen the Speed Bleeder 1/4 turn and pump your brake pedal. When the pedal is depressed the pressure generated opens the check valve letting air and brake fluid out of the end of the Speed Bleeder. When you release the pedal and it returns to the up position, the check valve closes and prevents any air from reentering the system through the Speed Bleeder. <font color="red">When bubble free fluid is evident you close the Speed Bleeder. </font>
Si... yo comprendo. I still think its easier (and its just my opinon) to screw on the cap... pump the pressure bleeder to 20psi... go around to all 4 wheels and bleed em out... unscrew the pressure bleeder and be done with it.Fluid does not get sucked back in (thanks to one way valve)...so you loosen the bleeder, hook up the clear hose and bottle, get in car and pump pump pump, get out and look at the clear hose and repeat if necessary until the hose is bubble free. Once the bubbles are no longet there, tighten the bleeder and move on to the next corner.
Please just send me the money you are going to be spending on the speed bleeders! If you are saying you will be using them w/ a pressure bleeder; you will be doing the same exact actions as someone with out the speed bleeders and a pressure bleeder.i need to replace my bleed screws and i will probably be replacing them with speedbleeder screws, but i'll be using them in conjunction with a motiv power bleeder. it's just so much easier to turn the bleed screw and out comes the juice
That is a piece I may pick up. Just do a little adapter and I can use is on the old Fox brakes too! Nice find Todd
