Well im just wondering what the extra bleeder is for really? But i already got it ordered. i need brakes my truck is loaded with tree debris right now and i need to drive 15 miles to dump it haha and with no brakes thats a no go so thats why i was a lil worked up on trying to figure it out. Didnt think fixing simple brakes like these would be such a deal. But i would like to know how to find more info on these different types of brake systems for when i want to add the c60 axle with bigger brakes and 2 extra wheel cylinders i got.... hopefully the one i got is gonna work good.
Now with the booster with two bleeder screws which do you bleed first when bleeding the system? Or does it matter?
Hy DIY.MechanicMike, you bleed the one the greatest distance from the ground first then the other one. Usually the one closest to the diaphragm first and then the one on the barrel. Without seeing a picture that's the best way I have to describe it, good luck.
Heres a picture of my workshop with the big rig pulled in, it barely fit threw the garage door. Haha jk. I sure wish i had a shop to pull it in so i could do alot to it over winter when its cold and wet......but im a poor boy mechanic haha..... eventually im gonna paint it, havnt decided a color yet, was thinking white cuz its cheap and not as much heat build up cuz i dont wanna park it under a tree like the previous owner... and i also wanna paint the bed and the under carriage. there is alot of grease build up on frame almost like someone greased the whole undercarriage. which to be honest i think preserved everything from rusting, cuz the spots that i cleaned are rusty now so i gotta either paint it or re grease everything i "cleaned" ha jk. But it might be a super secret hack to rust prone climates like the mid west, just grease the whole truck grease fittings, frame rails, everything, f'it put some grease in a paint sprayer and hit the whole under carriage with a light coat lol.
Update: the previous order i made was canceled so i had no other choice but to contact midwest remanufacturing out of bedford park, il basically chicago. And they rebuild these and they didnt have one in stock for my truck but they said to send it in and we can have it rebuilt in a couple days so ...... you can guess who im doing business with. Its a 200dollar rebuild fee plus you have to ship it to them so depending on how far away you are its not half bad im luckly on the south tip of illinois and theybare at the top so shipping wont eat me alive. But figured id lay it out there for anyone needing same thing.....
