There are different kinds of brake bleeder on the market -

- Vacuum to suck the brake fluid out of the brake system at the brake calipers

- Apply pressure to brake fluid reservoir and you open the nipple at the brake calipers

Which one is better for an Alfa?
I will be using the same unit on an ABS equipped VW and a Honda bike too.

I was thinking about the "Power Bleeder" from http://www.motiveproducts.com/ before I saw something that use a hand vacuum pump to suck brake fluid out.

Any suggestion is welcome.

Thx in advance. :D

It won't work

I just opened the brake fluid reservoir and found out that the PRESSURE power bleeder will not work because of the way my 73 GTV was designed. The two caps both have a big gap where the sensors go into, and they will not hold the pressure the bleeder generated at all. Oh, well. :)

Any recommendation on the style one??
How does this one sound?

BTW, what's that metal thing sitting between the two caps??

THx. :D
