    Earl's Solo Brake Bleeders

    Anyone out there tried these puppies? Do they work? Do they leak? Do they maintain brake feel? They're a cheap add-on, relatively speaking.

    Forgive me as I'm a relative newbie to LS1.com, but what does "subscribing" mean?

    also subscribing, I hope this ends up being a quality product. it's a pain in the ass having to be under the car and be yelling "step on the brake..... now take your foot off..... step on it again.....ok now hold!! don't let go!" lol

    Mine have been working fine for the past 4 years, it`s really nice to bleed the brakes without help. I use a pressure bleeder and it makes it really easy.

    A pressure bleeder uses compressed air to apply pressure to your master cylinder, which allows you to easily bleed your brakes without pumping the brake pedal. Motive is one of the more popular brands and is the one I have, they retail around $60-$75. Summit and Jeggs carry them.

    Makes sense. Again, pardon my igorance, but what and/or how do you hook the pressure bleeder up? Specifically what does it hook to and how does it attach? Thanks for taking the time to educate me.

    No problem. The Motive bleeder comes with an adapter cap that attaches to the master cylinder; The link I posted above is for GM late model cars. You simply fill the bleeder with fresh brake fluid, tighten the top and attach the adapter to the master cylinder. Use the pump handle to pressurerize the bleeder (15-20 PSI), make sure nothing is leaking and start bleeding the brakes. The Motive comes with good directions and is very easy to use.
