Brake Bleed tool suggestion ... Motive vs. MityVac ????
« on: September 07, 2006, 05:59:17 PM »
...I posted this on Team Camaro, ...but thought to ask here as well.

  Considering Brake Bleed tools, ...what is everyone else using? (if you know the model # of what you are using, ...please post)
 
 ... I'm looking at two units right now:

A Motive Kit#0250  http://store.summitracing.com/partdetail.asp?part=mvp-0250
...and a Mityvac Silverline Plus #04050.  http://www.tooltopia.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=8309

...I've found better prices other than the links above, ...so the price is within $8 between the two ($70-$80).

I never heard of the Motive before, ...but I am sided towards it since it seems a bit easier to use.

...comments? ...other suggestions?
 
  Thanks,
               Kevin

No-brainer - the Motive Products pressure bleeder is the best sixty bucks you'll ever spend; I've fought bleeding stubborn Corvette 4-piston disc brakes for years, and the MP pressure bleeder makes them a piece of cake and a one-person ten-minute job. I've tried all the other stuff (MityVac, Phoenix Injector, etc.) and none of them hold a candle to the MP setup.  :)

Low-tech guy here--I lay a cinderblock on the brake pedal and pump it up between cylinder bleeds (chuckle).

So Kevin, where's the best place to get the Motive Poducts MVP-0250 price wise?

Thanks,

Jimmy,
   The best price I found, and where I purchased mine was on Ebay as a Buy It Now. 
     (using Google's "Froogle" search, ...there are a couple places that are close, ...but tax and shipping add up)
  Here's a link...
