This is my set up EXACTLY. Works like a dream and its the only way to bleed
the clutch COMPLETELY.
I am using an old freon tank as the air source, had to braze some
fittings/pressure gauge/pressure regulator to it.
One more thing. Get a spare cap for the coolant expansion tank and run a
tire stem through it. You will get an excellent pressure tester for the
cooling system. No more testing for the leaks on the hot engine, no more
mess/burned fingers. Just connect it COLD, apply 20psi of air pressure and
watch for the leak. Throw a sheet of white cardbord under the car, makes it
easy to pinpoint the leak.\
