I always try to do it the Hemmings way,, but my wife is Polish so we end up
doing it a mixture of ways... Bob M
The Feb issue of Hemmings S&EC magazine has a brake bleeding procedure which
is different than what I've always done...so maybe I've been doing it wrong.
I've always opened the bleeder, had the wife gently pump the brakes a few
times and then hold the brake pedal down while I closed the bleeder. We'd do
that until there were no more air bubbles.
The Hemmings procedure starts with the bleeder CLOSED, while the assistant
gently pumps 5 or 6 times and then holds the pedal down. At this point you
OPEN the bleeder until the fluid stops flowing and then close the bleeder.
And repeat until there's no more air bubbles.
So..........do you pump the pedal and hold the pedal down with the bleeder
CLOSED or OPEN? Or doesn't it really matter?
