Tips for bleeding Antilock Brakes-new master

Anything I should know? I just replaced the master cyl. in Mom's 93 olds 88 and it's time for bleeding.

For the record, I use a vacuum pump to bleed brakes. Basic knowledge is all there, I just ain't never worked on a this new fangled stuff.

there shold be a little valve on the caliper if you loosen that you should be able to pump the brakes (from inside the car)and do that for each wheel

Thanks for the reply, but I'm trying to find antilock specific procedures. I know how to bleed normal brakes.

Well, they're done. Didn't do anything special. Just pulled a quart through the system and it stops great.

Thanks anyway.

I took my Grand AM to get the oil changed and they said my brake fluid was dirty and that it would be $100 for them to change it because they were the anti-lock brakes and there was something special that had to be done. I think I will just change it myself now if it is just like any other brakes.
