Any bleeder without a separate chamber for air and fluid with a rubber diaphragm in between is risky business.

Makes a good possibility for injecting air in to the system. That's why the pro systems are a bladder tank.

Does the $99 at HrL’s eBay link above have a bladder?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

It sure looks like it.

The search results changed.

When I posted, the Motive Pressure Bleeder was the first one displayed. Mine does not have a bladder.

This one is now the first displayed - does it have a bladder?

It would be more helpful if a product name and number is posted (or, an eBay listing number).

Thanks

I have had great luck with every dry brake system for many years all by myself, with a simple to use OTC air-powered vacuum bleeder. It's all about getting fluid to move quickly through the lines is all.

Posting Ebay links gets the thread edited pretty quickly. Sort of puts us between a rock and a hard place, doesn't it? That's OK- - - -the PC Patrol will figure it all out!

I don't mind an eBay link when used as an example. Especially when you're not trying to sell something here. Better would be to post a picture of the item, but not all folks are savvy enough for that. This is the pressure bleeder that is being discussed in this topic. It is a rubber bladder style. Brake fluid is in one side of the chamber and air pressure is applied to the opposite chamber. These items can be found for a reasonable cost on eBay. But, as with any tool, you need to ask yourself if it is worth the cost for a one time or more usage, or will it be used more often to make it worth it. Also keep in mind, rubber bladders won't last forever. I have yet to see one of my pressure brake bleeder bladders go bad. I can't say that for my BG trans flush machine. I believe we are on our 3rd bladder. And the machine is much younger than our brake pressure bleeder. I'ts all about the chemicals!

If we cannot post a link to an eBay listing, please post the company/product name and part number.

Then, we know what product is being referred to.

It would also be OK to say that you saw it for sale (at a good price) on eBay.

Thanks

Here is why we don’t post EBay links in the regular forums. They expire! So 2-3 months from now when a member is doing a search the thread comes up with an expired EBay link. The best way is to just type in the EBay item # in your post and the interested members can do an EBay search for that number.
