How long does it take to bench bleed master cylinder?
I am trying to decide which projects to focus on, given my limited free time lately. Any feedback here would be helpful. I have a brand new master cylinder (manual brakes) on order from NAPA.
once you've got it mounted in a vise, installed the fittings & clear tubing, added fluid, etc., probably no more than 15 min. BUT something i do (based on info on this forum) is to let it sit overnight and re-bleed it the next day to allow time for any air bubbles left to collect and join at high spots.
Dorman (I think) makes a mc bleeder tool...it's basically a large syringe that you use to force fluid up through the bottom ports. It's around 10 bucks and, for my mc bleed experience, worth every penny...took a handful of minutes.

When I bench bled my MC, I pumped it probably 100 times. Just the bench bleeding process maybe took 15 minutes. That is time well worth spending.
