Help ABS and bleeding

I all.

My 147 is laid up with it's engine in bits. I was thinking that while it's up and waiting this might be a good time to strip the brake calibers and have them power coated.

I'm hesitating because I'm not sure how to get them blead out after i re-fit them.

Can anyone help?

Best use a gentle procedure with something like the Gunsons Easibleed kit, which uses the air from a spare tyre, assuming you are short of a regulated compressed air supply.

Gently does it with the bleed nipples fully opened and making sure they are not blocked. If they are, clamp hose and probe the orifice with a bristle extracted from a wire brush, wash in meths and blow through to check they are clear.:
