Brake Pressure Regulator BTDT's

Got mine new off  Pricey, but that's how it goes.

I just unbolted the faulty unit and bolted the new one on.  No surprises; very straightforward.  I didn't bench bleed it, and really don't know how you 
would, seeing as how it doesn't really have a piston to pump like the MC.  Braking improved 100%.  Of course I bled the whole system after I had it on, 
but that was easy.  It's been a couple of months now and I haven't had a single problem.

>   I just recently picked up a BPR for my 87 4kq and was wondering if there are any BTDT as far as the installation goes?  Do I have to bench bleed it, 
such as with a master cylinder?  Any hints would be appreciated.  Thanks,
