Re: Brake Bleeder Adaptor (was Brake fluid replacement)

I tried a plastic cap (AMMCO drills out VoA brake reservoir caps and
adds a fitting) but the only way it would hold >5 psi was to make a
cover plate and use the chains that came with the GM reservoir adaptor.  
There wasn't enough room around the V8 reservoir to use the plate, and
none of the parts suppliers in town knew where to get a metal cap.  I
finally got a metal one by flagging down a Mac truck; the driver called
on several Mercedes and BMW dealers who had the same problem.  He had
several catalogs besides Mac, and fixed me right up.  The adaptor has an
"AST" logo stamped on it.
