Re: Motive brake bleeders

I have one and it's fantastic...& simple! I've had others but they were either messy or junk. This is a good piece. I've used it on all kinds of applications. I've purchased several adapters for different applications, btw.

Re: Motive brake bleeders

I have one too. I only remember to use it when I'm having a problem. Great tool for the money.

Re: Motive brake bleeders

Fair warning: once you buy it, you'll end up buying the attachment for every vehicle you own. It works great.

Precisely!!! My wife is so happy that she will never hear, "Pump it up... hold it...".

Re: Motive brake bleeders

I've got one and it makes bleeding brakes a one man job. Only issue I had was getting plate sealed to master but a few clamps fixed that. Well worth the money

Re: Motive brake bleeders

Old thread, but my buddy made one from a garden sprayer. I recently was replacing my master cylinder over at his shop and could not get the pedal to come back, he eventually said to use the power bleeder and there was still air in the rear lines, even though it came out with no air when manually bleeding them... They are life savers!

Re: Motive brake bleeders

I bought one, but have had issues with it, which I'm sure are operator error. In the photo above, one of the guys uses clamps on the master cylinder. I tried that and still had brake fluid going all over the place. It was a huge mess. I still think there is air in the lines somewhere too, as my brake pedal goes to the floor, when driving. If I pump it a couple of times, it comes back. If any of you are wondering, no I haven't driven it much at all in this condition.

I put a very small amount of grease on the mating surface to help seal. Then put two c clamps on it and pump up with just air at first to check for leaks. Once you fix leaks then add fluid and bleed

The one my friend built, he attached a piece of gasket to the plate covering the MC and I used large C clamps like the previous poster did and worked fine. You don't need much pressure to push the fluid through 10 psi is plenty!
