I'm sure the ez bleeder works well, just be sure you have a GOOD connection. On a ratty car the PO must have used one and it blew off spraying brake fluid all over the engine bay. The paint looked like a pleated curtain.
I rebuilt the MC and replaced boosters and tried every fashion of bleeding but had no luck. Could not get the pedal to firm up. With the bad threads on the reservoir I couldn't use pressure, so I used a vacume pump at the bleeders. Turns out somewhere the lines were not tight enough, they wouldn't leak fluid but would suck air. Once I retightened everything I got it to work. I tried to bleed that car for so long, its as if my mind was working at the speed of light.
