Re: Thanks JEEPN - Gravity brake bleeding
Glad I could help. The sharing of information on this BBS is what makes it great.
I "discovered" the gravity bleeding thing when I noticed the POS aftermarket calipers didn't have the bleeder at the top. I fiddled around with a 1x4 in the caliper at first, until common sense smacked me in the head (or was it the wife???). Sometimes when you're by yourself you can think of some pretty original ways to get the job done. Mine are a little easier to bleed than most, I just unscrew the bleeder and set the caliper on the fender, but you need some insanely long brake lines to do this (mine are 37", WAAAAAAY too long).
