Front Wheel Cylinders
« on: June 09, 2007, 01:52:41 PM »
I ordered a set of Speed Bleeders a few weeks ago and went to pu them in today - The two rears and passenger front went nice and easy so I move onto the last wheel (drivers front) and WTF!!!! the bleeder is a 7mm (or something around there) and should be a M6x1 Frickin' after market crap!!!


O well - ACVW.net will bail me out.

Its a bleeder screw with a built in ball valve that when cracked open with let you bleed the brake cylinder by depressing the brake pedel in the car.......It is supposed to be a quick way to do your brakes.............every set i ever sold was defective and all the guys in the scca used them for about one race....Those who did not crash took them off.

I agree
I put them in my Baja tried them out did not like the feel seem to leave the brakes spongy. Pulled them out and went back to stock bleeders. I complained to them, sent them back and suppose to be getting a credit for them, $7.00 each. I will see and let you know.
