Brake Fluid Bleeder
I added a hose to the fill bottle and found the right fitting to fit the FC fill hose. Hanging it can be a little tricky but what I do is put fluid in the fill bottle then attach it to the FC fill hose. When I'm close to done bleeding I close the shut off valve and bleed a line one or two more times then I can take the bottle off without spilling any fluid. Works pretty well. I'm sure a homemade system could be made also.
: 1960 FC170 stock brakes with bad rubber line
: to the driver front wheel. Replacing the
: rubber line section.
: I have the brake fill tube that comes out of
: the dash. My question is I don't understand
: how to tell when the master cylinder
: reservoir has the right amount of brake
: fluid in it?
: Do I just keep filling master cylinder until
: brake fluid comes out of the top of the
: rubber fill tube in the dash and then close
: the fill tube back up with the weird looking
: bolt that is on the end of the fill tube and
: call it done?
: Weekend 4 work will be a quickie paint job
: as the weather is nice here.
