Re: Silverline Bleeder

I'll agree with the comment below.  The MityVac just doesn't seem to
work very well because of air getting into the bleeder/hose junction. 
You could conceivably rig the silverline as a pressure bleeder by
finding a cap that you can use/mutilate, and a pressure gauge.

I've had better luck with one man bleeders from the local part store

I bought my MityVac for $10 less than what Imparts was selling it for at
the local parts store.

Has anyone looked into Eazy-Bleed (sp?) nipples?  The Porsche list a few
months back had a few people who tried these (basically a spring loaded
nipple with sealing ball in it) with success.  I don't know if they are
made for audi applications.

good luck!
