Default Got Brakes...

First I installed speed bleeders as I had to do the brake bleeding by myself. I tried the Shop Manual approach (see above) did not work at all. Then I installed a short length of brake tubing I had, to the output fitting from the master cylinder and ran it back into the master cylinder making sure it was covered with brake fluid. I pumped the brakes five or six times...out came some air bubbles, then none and the pedal got hard. Put the regular brake line back on the Master Cylinder and bleed the brakes. Bingo. I have brakes and they are not at all spongy.
The speed bleeders worked good, although I had to really get them tight for them to seal OK.

When bench bleeding or on the car to bleed the master cyl. DO NOT PUSH THE BRAKE PEDAL ALL THE WAY DONE UNITL YOU GET THE AIR OUT OF THE MASTER CLY.then when you start bleeding each line pump your brake peddle 4-5 times and hold down open brake bleed to remove air, I used alumium foil instead of rages to drain away the brake fluid away from any painted surfaces.
