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.

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!

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.
