...be careful not to run the MC reservoir dry - note that it takes a
lot more pedal pumps on the back than the front between fill ups.
Bleeding the MC on the car is a good idea too. Have someone press
the pedal while you crack open the valve under the hood. Make sure to have a rag over it -
brake fluid trashes paint.
There was also some talk about hoses and stuff - I bought a "one
man brake bleeder" kit from AutoZone. It's a hose with a clip to secure it
to the bleeder valve, and a one-way valve in the other end. Works Great! You just open the
valve, clip it on, drop the other end in a drain pan, and pump away on the brake pedal.
Basicaly if you read Carrol Smiths "engineer to win" book
on race car prep, it warns specficaly not to uses the power or hand pump vacume bleeders.
The vacume can lead to cavitation in the brake lines and microbubbles.
The Tilton cataloge and tech manual warn against these too. I have
always hand bled my brakes and always get a rock hard pedal. Read Adam Kim's post on adjusting m/c freeplay and do that.
