    Hi all, I recently had a bleed hose go bad and it was visibly seeping from the seam between the two platic halves of the 3-way hose connection, so I replaced it with a new Bearmach unit. Here we are a week later and it's doing the same thing! I tested it by blowing through each inlet tube...

    Replacing front brake lines tonight, go to tighten the bleeder screw after bleeding one cylinder and couldn't seem to get it to tighten up after awhile. I look closer at the bleeder screw and see fluid seeping from the base of the screw. :mad Looks like I'll be ordering some new wheel cylinders...

    For the life of me I cannot find the thread, but I seem to recall someone recommending replacing the bleed bolt on the spill/return banjo on top of the filter housing with a solid bolt to allow for more efficient and quicker bleeding after running out of fuel or doing fuel system work on a...

    Hey all. Have any of you with Lav's Dorman MC found which power bleeders are compatible? I've been looking at the Motive Power Bleeders, but am unsure which model is compatible with the lid on the Dorman. Thanks, Greg

    Looking for fuel bleed bolt on a 12J(or the like) injection pump. Can't seem to locate on in a parts manual to order. Any help is appreciated.

    I ended up breaking one thing while trying to fix another. :facepalm: I overtorqued the bleed screw atop the fuel injector pump and ~90% of the hole thread is now gone. The screw stays put, but is loose. The engine runs fine, but it leaks diesel out of the pump at a steady rate. I'm thinking...

    1990 110 200 TDI I can't for the life of me get enough room to get the torque needed to loosen the clutch slave cylinder's bleeder. I have been soaking it the last couple days thinking that would help in the cramped space, but cant get enough room/leverage to break it free. I know members of...

    I just recently replaced two fuel lines that connect the fuel filter to the injector pump. After doing so I loosened the union bolt on top of the fuel filter in attempt to bleed the lines. The truck fired right up and will run all day and not stutter. But, after letting it sit overnight the...

    Okay, Its not like I've never bleed brakes or a clutch before (Okay, is been quite a few years). Master cylinder is full, clear tubing hooked to bleed nibble on clutch slave. Bleed screw open a few turns (almost ready to fall out). No fluid when I pump the pedal... I didn't replace...

    There I was on the sudo home stretch of an engine pull, had just put the radiator in and tightened the hoses up. Oil lines were snug and I figured it was almost time to start adding some fluids. Topped up the oil, even managed to make sure the drain plug was tight. Then I went and took off...

    Have had lots more questions about diesel fuel line routing. Here are a few pictures of an Isuzu 4JB1-T setup, but the same for any diesel install. Routing = tank, sedimenter, 12V fuel pump, engine lift pump, Fuel Filter, IP, return line back to tank. Pump wiring from 12V relay = 86 - ignition...

    My 2.5TD has developed a weird fault. It will only start if I open the bleed screw on top of the Injection pump and close it when it starts. It runs well at tick-over and at higher revs, but when I stop the engine, even when its warm, it won't start unless I open the bleed screw again and it...

    While priming with the lift pump I can hear air bubbles in the tank and fuel/air moving through the lines. Should this be the case, should fuel be able to be pumped through the injection pump and back to the tank by manually priming the lift pump without the bleed screw on the filter open...

    Yesterday I lent the defender to a friend and, randomly, the clutch just stopped engaging. I think he might have gone over a speed bump when it happened - but I'm not sure. Depressing the clutch does not seem to engage it, meaning you can't put the vehicle in gear. When the vehicle is off (or...

    Using a Motive Black Label European Bleeder. Just got done bleeding the clutch, went no problem. Moved on to the brakes, the F-driver / F-passenger / R-driver calipers all bled fine, but when I got to the R-passenger one I cracked the bleeder and...nothing. Obviously stuck caliper, but is...
