Grant...did you happen to bookmark that really really neat bleeder tool I posted in one of your threads? Since I'm doing my master soon along with discs in the back, we should split for it.
The one man bleeder tool? I've been wanting one of those for ages.. uses a vacuum pump to bleed the system for you - ugh.. woudl be nice, usually run about a hundred+ bucks

It is a one man bleeder tool......but it's not a speed bleeder or a Mityvac....uses a big container that's filled with fluid, goes like ontop of or connects to the master cyl, the big container is pressureized via compressed air(i think)then the fluid is pushed down the lines to let out the bubbles at the bleeders at the calipers/wheelcyls. I don't remember the site or the brand...just gotta find the darn post! lol.




EDIT: I think it's either very similar or exactly like this...

Brake Bleeder for Round Master Cylinders < 3-1/4"


Let me search a little to confirm...

CONFIRMED!

Motive Products



Just gotta find out which adaptor fits, how many prongs our caps have, then it's money! $50-75 really ain't that bad at all for how awesome the product is. Espicially when usually working alone and needing to evac an entire system.

Dammit Shane, you've talked me into it. Lets do it man. Are you going to run the super brake fluid that came with our powerstop brakes?? We must have 6 pints right? I did some math and if all our lines are 3/16 inch....it ain't very much fluid in the whole system, lol.

Okay, lets order it tongiht!

I'm gonna get the blue fluid from that link I posted above. That way I can see it through the clear lines!

Okay, i think we need the bleeder 1107. This has the three prong adapter already built into it....we don't need to buy the 'black label' adapter (it looks like its machined out of aluminum...why do we need that???).
-OR-
We can build our own custom kit with a small tank ad pump and then buy the adapter. A 2qt tank and the 'black label' Al adapter total is only 74.95. Premade with plastic cap is 64.95.....

Oh, and i'm sticking with the fluid we got, should be some good stuff

I enlightened him to the pump when we(meaning I) were wrenching on the Racecort^2 last night. Came inside and he was looking at the website, watching the vids, even went as far as to see how much per bottle that blue fluid was in bulk! He was talking about taking car of all the vehicles. He better be in for thirds. haha.

Nice! did you ahve to bleed any thing in the Racecort^2? Would that pump work for changing the antifreeze? or would be just hook the garden hose to flush out the coolant?

To evac a cooling system...we'd need a little more than that handpump. lol...I'm talkin' compressor powered bro. lol. We'd do a flush like normal people do.


Sidenote: that car is uuuuugly sounding when straight piped and I'm pretty sure that coolant leak is coming from the waterpump gasket.

Hello. Noob here. B2 sway bar. What is the benefits of running one of these particular ones over stock. Not really knowledgable about what you folks do with the rangers. I just drive mine. Most comfortable and reliable truck I have had so far. Still going strong. TIA

The bronco II sway bar is a lot thicker than a stock ranger rear sway bar. Lots of rangers never even came with rear sways, so it'll be a huge improvement in handling over stock....and i've got an extra one for sell
