Bleeding clutch/ brakes
i think the easy way is to use a easybleed kit, but you need a old cap from the breakers about a fiver, carefully cut a 10mm hole in centre then fit the tube (after removing float and stuff make sure you keep the sealing top hat inside your need this later),but their are 3 small holes in the cap that need sealing up (i used a washer on top with silicon once dried works fine.)
this all take a while to set up, but once done follow the instruction on the easybleed kit.
you only need 10 - 15 psi to bleed with i use an old bike tyre.
then its dead easy (soak the nipple overnight) only use ring spanner. open nipple quarter of a turn. fluid flows out wait for clean fluid/no air bubbles.close nipple not to tight. job done.
its a bit of a pain setting it all up, but just think next time you can bleed in minutes, no pumping and is a one man job.
i just done my clutch in 5 mins no prob.
