Q: Bleeding Brakes
Speaking of bench bleeding….. how is this done? Is there some books that explain this that I could look at… Or is it simple enough on a 1968 Firebird for a quick explanation here??
Secure the master cylinder in a level position (level is VERY important).
Attach a tube to each brake line on the master cylinder and place the other end of each tube in it’s associated well.
Fill each well in the master cylinder with fresh brake fluid.
Using an appropriate tool drive the plundger (brake peddle rod) into the master cylinder.
Continue #4 until no more bubbles appear.
Plug brake line connectors and put master cylinder lid on.
