Farkle Purchasing System
I dunno, pretty sure it SHOULD work. I do the same thing when I've bled the clutch.Heh, it's like black magic. This morning the front brake lever is nice and firm. Not sure why that works, pretty sure it shouldn't, but at any rate now I can call that job done and move on
Having the lever held down should let any bubbles in the lines slowly work their way up to the master cylinder, and out.
also: I leave the respective cover off, with just a shop towel covering the opening, to help any bubbles escape more easily.
