Hi folks, Yup, me again. I've replaced the clutch m/c as part of the '77B's return to original braking configuration. Problem is that I can't seem to get any hydraulic action, i.e., no pedal resistan

Toss the Mightyvac and get someone to pump the brakes. Before attempting to bleed them adjust them.Then crack the bleeder push the pedal down put your thumb over the bleeder, release the pedal and do

Hi Bud, As far as I'm concerned the best way to bleed MG hydraulics is with the ez-bleed. I will restrict this to RB's only 'cause that's what I'm woring on now but with the correct cap I'm sure the

The question is, are you getting any clutch action? I blew out my clutch m/c once 40 miles from home. The service station I wound up at said they could replace it, so I just walked the rest of the w

I've rebuilt the slave cyl and am trying to bleed the air out of the system. I am pumping the clutch and the bleeder valve is spurting but it seems to suck the air back each time the clutch is pushed

This is a two person operation. You need someone pumping the pedal and someone at the valve opening and shutting it. When the pedal is depressed the valve should be open, when the pedal is allowed to

Hi Desert Rat, On the down stroke you have to close the bleeder screw. It's one of those two person deals. Close the bleeder then have the leg man pump several times and hold. Open the bleeder, fluid

Debbie, try the suggestions you have received, but don't despair if you can't get it to work. I recently had to connect a bicycle foot pump to my reservoir and pump as hard as I could to get the flui
