Re: Brake bleeding

Longest run first and so on, to finish on the shortest.

Either a one man bleeder, the traditional two man job (but gentle pushes on the brake pedal, the master cylinder seals are fairly fragile) or a vacuum bleeder (my favourite -- a mityvac alike).

Don't open the bleed nipples more than a crack, and use a six sided socket to open them initially.
