Just got my new Russell catalog and noticed a cool product called Speed Bleeders. Anything that can let you bleed brakes without help seems like it might be worth trying. Have any of you guys tried them and do they really work?
Thanks.
Dan.

those things have been around for years, i think they started offering them for motorcycles. I've used them on my bike, and they worked, but you can get a check valve on a vinyl tube for $2/3 at the parts store, and you can just move it to where you want.

I bought them from Summit and love them. It made bleeding the brakes a boring job after I replaced my brake lines.

I run them on my 69 Camaro and love them. The front I originally ordered the 3/8 - 24 speed bleeders, but found I had to bottom them out just to get them to seal (just a little shorter than stock bleeders), so I recommend the 3/8 - 24 LONG which are a little longer and won't bottom out.
