Put a piece of plastic tubing on the bleeder and put in a jar of brake
fluid.You will see air bubbles come out on the down stroke and then
close the bleeder on the up stroke the tube in the jar will keep any air
from being sucked back into the system.With someone pumping the pedal
this is an easy job..Just make sure the resevoir keeps full.Keep pumping
until no bubbles come out and the pedal feels right.
Good luck.....Pat
