Brake & Clutch Bleeding System - Recomendation


BugMan

Recommended Posts

Ok team, got some brake and clutch bleeding/filling in my near future, and TBH I've not done any of this since I was about 19, on a knackered yellow Ford Escort Mk1

So I'm after some recommendations on what I need, what makes it easiest etc.

Seen a whole bunch of stuff if you Google it, but after what is best/easiest to use, and ideally make it a 1 man operation ?

Gunsen’s Eazibleed, just be very careful not to exceed the recommended tyre pressures or it gets messy fast!

Not sure you need the French version . Normal version is only £20 and on Prime. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gunson-G4062F-G4062-Eezibleed-Kit/dp/B001KTFIWA/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1518781822&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=Gunson+Eezibleed

It works well but agree about minding the pressure, it's a quick way to find leaks

That looks bl**** clever, so it replaces the top of the reservoir so I guess then there is no foot-pedal work and the air-pressure does the work 4u?

When I first bled mine with an easibleed , I went round twice and then left it a week and then went round again. Then any micro bubbles , after a week will have travelled up the calipers .

.. and whatever you do, don't let the reservoir run out of fluid.  I've done that several times.. Just bleed a little more out.. and a little more.. Then you get that sound like a kid sucking through a drinking straw when there's nothing left, as your brake system fills with compressed air. :cry:

Echo the not using too much pressure. Deflate your spare tyre first and just add back the 10psi or so it suggests. I used it with my 30psi spare thinking it would just last longer for repeated bleeding. Don't do it..... spent longer clearing up than it took to bleed all four brakes :d
