    Default Brake Bleeding Kit

    Just bought this for £21 on ebay, seems a decent bit of kit for the price. I usually use one of those eezibleed one-way valve thingys that mean you can leave the nipple open while you pump the pedal, but although they work, they're not as "one-way" as they're supposed to be, because the pedal is never quite as firm as when a garage does the job. However, I prefer to do jobs like this myself and I dislike paying 40 odd quid to a garage for it, hence why I've now bought this Silverline tool.

    I've got one like that, other than the supplied container being too small it works great. Just keep the reservoir filled and empty the containers every once in a while and it's an easy job

    Yea, I did note that the bottle is quite small, but I guess if it was a lot bigger then the hinged case the kit comes in would also have to be a lot larger too.

    That's probably the reason, If I had a garage I'd probably make some sort of mounting system on top of a larger container so I'd just have to connect it and pull a vacuum.

    @Big Dave. Sorry, I know how to use Gunson's EZbleed kit, I'm using it for years.

    I was wondering how Silverline tool works (language barrier)...I found similar device on YT.
