Have any of you ever used the russell speed bleeders?
Are they useful in bleeding the brakes?
If not, what is the easiest method for an impatient guy?

I'm not familiar with Russell, but speed bleeders are slick, and are perfect for an "impatient" guy. They save a lot of brake fluid and clean-up too.

Are those the ones in the catalogs that sell for like $10 each? If so I've considered it, but not sure if its worth the money, I'm not that impatient yet.

The slick set up is to install a valve stem in a spare m/c top, and pressurize the m/c with air. Makes bleeding the brakes a one man job, and you don't have to pump the brakes!

I have this setup but I think my Wilwood proportioning valve is somehow trapping air.
It does some to work well but I still have air trapped in the system.
