Come along with Eric O. at the SMA shop as he demonstrates the use of the Branick G300 Pressure Brake Bleeder. There are several types of brake bleeding devices this is just the method we use at the shop. Some use pressure and replenish the master cylinder at the same time and others use vacuum. They all have their advantages and disadvantages. --Enjoy!

    Thanks SMA !!

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheOcculus says:

    Motive Products sells a fairly affordable pressure bleeder, for shadetree guys, that looks like it's based on the DIY homemade ACE hardware weed sprayer pressure bleeder.
    I built a weed sprayer pressure bleeder 25 years ago before Motive started selling theirs for less than it would cost me to build mine now. I still use the darn thing with some of the Motive Products MC caps LOL

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars somemedic says:

    It's a lovely vessel and I'm sure it's worth every penny.

    I bleed brakes in my military truck using a garden sprayer. It compresses the fluid into the master cylinder making the bleed a one man process. Next trip out to the bone yard grab a master cylinder lid thats specific to your vehicle or the autoparts store.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Spixy cat says:

    Make that green cap from aluminium so that it stays flat and won't leak. Thanks for the tip on preventing sucking air when using a vacuum pump.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DrJD123 says:

    Would this help force air out of the master cylinder? Mine as air in it and vaccum/gravity and pedel pumping bleeding wont seem to get rid of it. I wanna avoid taking it off and bench bleeding if I can.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Enrique V says:

    Another great video! Thank you so much!!!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Baxter says:

    Cool. Hadn’t seen this video. I have a schwaben power bleeder that functions like that but with a smaller reservoir and hand pump to pressurize. Under $100 with a reservoir to catch fluid at the calipers.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bob Grizley says:

    Mine arrived today. Love it so far. Big expense with all the adapters, but no more asking my teenagers to pump the brake pedal.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rulusan says:

    Vacuum is what I use and yeah mighty vac…. Works great for a home system. Easy peazy lemon squeazy.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars speed freak says:

    Nice cv boots… Great video. One can also use Teflon Tape on bleeder threads instead of grease

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Terrence Carter says:

    Love your videos. Keep it going.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars petronics2454 says:

    Really well demonstrated as usual and I feel more confident with my new pressure system. Thanks immensely.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B&B Ltd. says:

    BROTHER, WHERE CAN I GET THE CAP WITH THE AIR COMPRESSOR ADAPTER AND THE CHAIN HOLD DOWN? ITS NOT IN YOUR DESCRIPTION. I NEED THIS TOOL PLZ HELP. ITS SO UNIVERSAL I LOVE IT

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald White says:

    Thank you for the tip on how to bleed the master cylinder. I have the Powerbleeder system. I cracked the front bleeder, pushed the brake pedal 4-5 times and the pedal was back to the top with a hard pedal.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kyle Bender says:

    I did a disc brake conversion on a 68 f100, I can’t get a good pedal and am considering pressure bleeding. If I do I need to do anything with the proportioning valve.
    Thanks

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bird johnson says:

    Can you do for free

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Greg Hill says:

    that looks exactly like a pressure tank for a heating system

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fdegeorge2000 says:

    When the grease on the nipple isn’t working properly add a spring clamp from a vacuum line. So remember grease and clamp nipple before sucking.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Cruise says:

    👍👍👍👍💯

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Beach says:

    I tried putting grease around the bleeder screw, still got air so, I took the bleeder out wrapped five turns of Teflon tape around the threads. Put the bleeder screw back in hand tightened the screw, no more air coming away.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vasia visilievic says:

    Get a big syringe from a drug store, for a dollar, put a clear hose on it. Now you have a vacuum brake bleeder for a few bucks.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RusH N RelaX says:

    Please respond…. if I run a loop from bleeder screw to master cylinder reservoir w/a tube and pump the brake pedal until solid fluid and repeat on all other bleeder screws will that flush and bleed the entire brake system properly

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Pratt says:

    "we're gonna blame that on Josh, cuz he's not here…throw him under the bus"

    Standard Operating Procedure

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Douglas Dailey says:

    Question, can you bleed the brakes on a ABS brake system by having someone pump the brakes ?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars YardpigTSI says:

    I do agree, I have bled with pressure bleeder and then pumped pedal and found more air. Great video's thanks. A+++ A1

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Johann Borg Myatt says:

    I have a similar pressure bleeding kit like the one used in this video. couple of questions:

    – If you hook up the entire system and it continues to fill at a point of bursting, does this mean you have to lower the pressure from the regulator ?
    – How do you flush the brake fluid used in this tool ? say you were using DOT 3 and some day you need to use it with DOT4 and DOT5 ?

    Thanks as Always for the Videos Eric

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincen Ferguson says:

    does this work ok on abs systems

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joseph Dias says:

    Very efficient for someone doing lots of brake fluid replacements

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vince says:

    Bought one of the $100 Motive bleeders off Amazon and a specific Honda adapter after using one of the awful $25 vacuum ones you hook up to your compressor and hope for the best. Best money I've ever spent on a car tool. Makes bleeding an absolute breeze. Great video, Eric.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J Mabs509 says:

    Man that's hell of a tool. I'm other here in the stone ages with my cousins brother husband Bob in the driver seat pump and go while I'm at the bleeder 😂 love your channel!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars john beach says:

    Hi i use teflon tape to seal brake bleed nipples ,works great……stops them rusting in the caliper as well….

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Groel says:

    thank you for sharing

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VelleyIndustrial says:

    Motive power bleeder $60 & catch bottle $15. Works flawlessly.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Learned says:

    Wanna' be sure I understand correctly with vac tool. Remove bleed nipple, coat with grease before vac bleeding???

    Curious, what do you do with the old brake fluid?? Save as paint remover!!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter O says:

    Your using a universal adapter they suck… diy a real cap done fast.. I maintain 4 cars…

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter O says:

    I love my motive power bleeder…made some diy master cylinder caps I got 3 diffo cars… a one man show.. best 50 bucks ever…

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Johnson says:

    Grease on the nipple. I was just fighting this problem a hour ago. I was about ready to punt my vacuum bleeder across the driveway.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lokey ID says:

    I'd put the adapter on and pressurize the system without any brake fluid to ensure there is no pressure decay, once you eliminate any leaks, depressurize and fill with fluid. No mess.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Meatball Magoo says:

    Can you strain the old fluid , recycle ?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stefanos P says:

    What about the brake fluid in the ABS system? Some cars have a closed ABS system which only opens when the ABS is activated. A normal brake fluid change/flush won’t get the fluid out of the ABS system. You need a computer scan tool to activate and auto bleed the ABS.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars apostmax says:

    Too much blah blah

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Nguyen says:

    pressure bleeding vs vacuum bleeding by tool using shop air, which way is better?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Smith says:

    How about thread tape instead of grease on the nipple threads. I took a brake coarse and there was a big sign saying grease and mineral oil spell death or something like that. thread tape should work just as good but nice tip. I love your vids. It kills me when people say they would rather pay a pimple faced kid to work on there car than buy the tools and do it them selves. Once you own the tools your set for life. Plus the satisfaction knowing it's done right. It's like when you hear some sound coming from under your car If you crawl under it and its nothing critical then the sound doesn't bother you, but if you don't know what it is and your wife wants to take your kids to the store and you think what's if it's a ball joint that's ready to break`

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harvey Farr says:

    I wished I lived near you, you would have a steady customer and I wouldn't have to do repairs myself. Keep up the good work and videos.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bradon Meggitt says:

    Any tips for a s10 2003 rear drum brakes put new master cylinder, new wheel cylinders, new brake shoes, and brakes still go to floor with truck running. I’ve tried power bleeding, vacuum bleeding, regular bleeding. I’m getting fluid but won’t build pressure. I’ve tried 2 master cylinders and same thing. I did bench bleed m/c and tried auto bleed on abs. Any advice appreciated. Love the videos very helpful and detailed.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars filter taylor says:

    Clean brake fluid gives better braking. Physicist explained that when moisture mixes with brake fluid it gets thicker, so change it !

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dave taulker says:

    Hey Eric I just purchased a Mity Vac system very similar to what you used in this video. But it is a pump up pressure style and not a pneumatic one like yours.
    When using one of those to bleed brakes is it necessary to use a tool to lock/hold the brake pedal down inside the vehicle?
