Yep, just found those. Looking at a deal on one if it holds at the price. That looks pretty cool.

Works well, had mine for about 5 years. I've got attachments to fit every vehicle we own and one that fits the master cylinder on the boat trailer.

Used them on other cars that I take to the track. Really helps out doing solo bleeding when I'm racing often. Just got a Motive pressure bleeder and will have to agree the thing kicks ***.

A pressure bleeder is easy to make with a small garden sprayer, a pressure gauge, and a JY brake reservoir cap at cost of not over 15 bucks.

You can even get fancy and use a Schrader valve instead of a hand pump.

Plus, it's more fun than just buying one.

Well, I don't see anything wrong with that plan. hardest part would be finding the fitting.

As long as you never want to use it on a regular flat top MC then that should work OK, but I don't think I'd go to the trouble since the motive bleeder costs $45.

I thought of something that may be a tripping point but I'm not sure. Some of the sprayers I have used in the past had a silicon grease or at least looked like it in the pump slide. Isn't silicone a bad thing in hydraulics?

You would need to remove any contaminants. The one I bought was dry. The brake fluid will act on the rubber seals in the pump and ruin it after a while anyhow.

During my short stint as a heavy equipment mechanic, we used a metal tank with a sealed lid with scrhader valve, a pressure gauge, a ring and hook on top. Pour in a quart of fluid, put the lid on, Hang it up, put 10-15 psi head pressure on it with compressed air.

One guy who did brakes all the time used regulated air into it and had a cutoff valve.

So you can go as simple or elaborate as you want. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention.
