What's up with parts stores now? I bought a new master cylinder for my 69 and it didn't come with the kit to bench bleed it with. Guy at the parts store said that none of them come with the kit anymore. I bought a vacuum pump to bleed the brakes. Will the master cylinder bleed out the air when I vacuum bleed the wheel cylinders?

It will eventually BUT you will have to pull all the air through the system,ANT it will be a bitch to git all out. You will be better figuring a way to bench bleed the master cyl. Buw a couple short length of brake line and make your own!!!

I've already installed the master cylinder and rebuilt the rear brakes and bled them (starting with passenger's side) until the fluid was clean (new) and no air bubbles. I've started on the front now. If the pedal doesn't firm up then I'll start over.

Hey 69,

The $2-$3 for the bench bleeding tubes and connectors are a good investment. When I bench bled my '74 Maverick master cylinder it took me 30 slow solid pumps to get ALL the air out. Once I installed it, the brake system was SOLID!!
