$22 for the garden sprayer. $1.40 for 3/8 clear hose. $3 for a junk store pressure guage some old fittings and a few scraps of metal from work and viola. (Motive wants $79 for the same darn thing)


It is tested and works well. I used an old cap gasket and a c clamp to seal it.

I love it! Any amount of air pressure is better than a gravity bleed. I've got one of those hand-held vacuum pumps, and although better than gravity bleeding it wouldn't work nearly as well as your setup guaranteed. What kind of pressure does it build up?

It will go pretty high but the gasket bettween master and lid blows out at
about 15 psi and makes one hell of a mess. :D . At 10 psi it can push fluid past my speed bleeders.
I also started my resent rear disc project with my mighty vac which did a great job on the front but the rears where a PITA.

What are you using for the rear discs? Did you get a kit or are have you been compiling parts for the conversion?

Building your own pressure bleeder like that I sorta figured you would collect parts for your rear disc conversion. :D

Let us know how it works.

I built a power vacuum bleeder. Got a air venturi from WW Grainger and used the cup off my old mighty vac. Use about 65 psi on the venturi, can bleed all four brakes in 15 minutes.

No e-brake. If I need to add one a go-kart caliper and rotor retro fitted to the pinion yolk will do the job
