[DML] Re: Brakes broke..

I have tried bleeding brakes many ways over the years. I have never
been completely satisfied using the vacuum methods. You wind up
pulling in air from the loosened bleeder threads making you think
there is still air in the system and never getting a really good
vacuum all the while drawing in air. You can only get max negative 15
psi while by pressure bleeding you can get a lot more pressure and
flow. My favorite is the 2 man method with the mansaving check valve a
close second. I always start at the nearest cylinder and work to the
farthest and do it at least twice. On newer cars (not Deloreans) with
ABS you MUST follow the manufacturers bleeding procedures and not
invent your own. On Deloreans you have to bench bleed the master
cylinder before installing it.
