[DML] Re: Soft brake peddle UPDATE

Just my two cents here :)
  I've never been able to bleed all the air out of new brake
components with a one person bleeder.  I don't know why, but I think
the dry components hold air bubbles on the surfaces inside and need
the pressure and agitation of fluid being forced by the master
cylinder to knock the bubbles loose.
I just grab another technician and bleed the brakes, that way there's
no question about air remaining in the system.
However, if someone does find a successful one person bleeder...
