Bleeding brakes after extended brake line installation
I just installed front and rear extended stainless steel brake lines, and need some info on bleeding the system. In my Haynes repair manual, it say I need a tool to hold a part open on the proporting valve in order to bleed the brakes. On every vehicle I have ever done brake work on, I don't recall ever using a tool like this. Is it really necessary? Also, I had intended on making this a one man project, and using a vacuum pump to bleed the system. However, the vacuum will not pull the brake fluid out of the bleeder screw. Could this have something to do with that tool, or is it going to be necessary to have someone pump the pedal for me?
