yoopone I bought this little guy. One-Person Brake Bleeder - Specialty Tools - Tools - Griot's Garage

Works awesome. Just hook it up to my compressor and bleed away. Great way to flush the system too, very fast. The forced air from the compressor creates a venturi like effect.

Jared234 The front bleeders are bigger than the rear, front are 3/8 and the rear 5/16

I just put these on my new Black Magic Calipers and they work great.

UFOtestpilot If you search speed bleeders here you'll see the correct part numbers I listed for Russell SB's. I just made a thread like a week ago, but nobody is interested. I put them on all 4 as it makes no sense to install them on only two. Their website lists the wrong part numbers on their website, so you may want to check or reference the size to be sure.

ChrisJeepTJ Sorry to dig up an old thread, but do you install speed bleeders at all 4 wheels, just the front or just the back? This is on a 99' TJ w/o ABS. Discs up front, drums in back. They come in a pack of two, at least from Advance where I bought them:

Jerry Bransford Don't use teflon tape the first time Speed Bleeders are installed. Unless you move them to different brakes, the sealant that comes on them is all you need.

Geoff, they have a one-way ball valve inside that eliminates the need to have someone opening/closing the bleed valve as you pump the brakes. It makes bleeding the brakes a one-man job.

doclouie They make flushing the brake lines so much easier than the old process. I will never go without them on my vehicles again.

Vector6 the speed bleeders come with some kind of thread sealant on the threads... mine have been installed for over 3 years, and have been in 2 sets of calipers...

i find after removal, the sealant they install is removed.. and they will suck air around the threads.. so i take some teflon tape, and wrap it around the threads to seal them... that way it doesnt suck air while im bleeding the brakes.

Geoff@Bestop Explain this please!

Vector6 i have them on my front calipers... they are nice to use.. i have found a little teflon tape on the threads help
