The old manual way
Bleeding brakes used to be a difficult thing to do in
the past. It generally required two people to bleed brakes. You had to have one person
pump the brake pedal while you had the mechanic open and close the bleeder screw. You had
to coordinate the openings and closings with the pumper. If you didn't coordinate the
timing correctly you could end up with more air in the system than when you started.
Bleeding brakes can be done a number of ways:
A vacuum bleeder is another way to bleed brakes. It attaches
to your bleeder screw and sucks the fluid from the master cylinder, thus bleeding your
brakes. If not used correctly, it can let air into your brake system. It costs from
The new and improved way
Introducing SPEED BLEEDER® brand
checkvalve, the patented
bleeder screw with the built-in check valve. It is truly a one-person bleeder screw.
Once installed, it becomes a permanent part of the brake system. When it is
time to bleed your brakes, you loosen the Speed Bleeder brand checkvalve 1/4 turn and pump your brake
pedal. When the pedal is depressed the pressure generated opens the
letting air and brake fluid out of the end of the Speed Bleeder brand
checkvalve. When you release
the pedal and it returns to the up position, the check valve closes and prevents any air
from reentering the system through the Speed Bleeder. When bubble free fluid is
evident you close the Speed Bleeder brand checkvalve. In the closed position it works just like your
stock bleeder screw and prevents any brake fluid from leaking out. It
generally takes about 5 pumps to purge each caliper or wheel cylinder. That is all
there is to bleeding your brakes. If at a later date you need to bleed your brakes,
the patented thread sealing system makes it easy to open the bleeder screw to perform the
bleeding operation. It is made of quality materials and it is economical.

Patented thread sealing system seals the
threads when the bleeding operation is performed, preventing air from being sucked back
into the system.
The pre-applied thread sealant also
displaces air and moisture during thread engagement preventing rust...which usually

to replace the caliper or brake cylinder. The application of thread sealant thus makes it
easy to loosen or remove the bleeder screw at any time.
