For the last two years I have bled brakes on my own with just a spanner, hose and brake fluid.
I start at the front right and work my to the rear left. All I do is crack the bleeder and let it drip. I then tighten the bleeder screw back up and go to the next. Lastly I hose evereything down. I occasionally attach a hose to the nipple if I can find a peice. I know it sounds wrong but I tell ya my peddle feels as good as any normally bled system.

Regards A

I just attach a length of rubber hose and have the open end elevated so no air gets in, works a treat...

fixed my cardone joint today, a bit dodgy but it works.
used all my old parts just got a thick o-ring to replace the seal on the little ball joint cost $1 and put the old seal cap over it.
and i used the old uni joints as there was nothing wrong with them, just greesed them all up.

used my 2 special tools to install the uni's, a big hammer and a 3/8 spark plug socket

when i get the new cardone joint from the states i might use it, or wait till this one stuffs up again.
