Re: how to bleed new brake system 67 drums
Joel, Are you bleeding the brakes yourself with no assistance? If so, and you have no brake bleeder system, I suggest purchasing SPEED BLEEDER (one person brake bleeders with built -in check valve) Part # DORMAN 12704. NAPA, Autozone, Kragens, etc has them usually. Two self bleeder screws come per package. So you will need two packages. Follow the simple directions and leave them in. Also, start with the furthest wheel from the master cyl first...rear passenger. Worked for me. Make sure you slowly pump the pedal. I pushed a clear hose onto the bleeder screw and stuck the other end in a bottle to catch the expelled brake fluid. Plus you can see when the air is released by a steady flow of brake fluid. No need to close screw between pumps- check ball will not allow air in. $10 per package. Took me 4-5 slow pumps of the pedal per slave cylinder. Do not let the master cyl reservoir fluid level get too low or you will suck air and have to bench bleed the master cyl again. I will never use my pressure bleeder again.
