I have one, too, but I got it before they added the toolbox case -- was a

Don,

I've been using a SpeediBleed (www.speedibleed.com) for many  
years. Very satisfied...  But, price is up to $109 ...  I paid  
about $60 IIRC


It connects to a tire for pressure.

Take care,

Don - there was a home brew one made from a $10 True Value hand pump 
sprayer, a Pep Boys master cylinder cap and some hoses - described a couple 
of years ago on these lists.  I made one and it works pretty well.  A nice 
feature is that as a small plastic sprayer, you don't expose a big amount of 
fluid to the atmosphere and you can see the quantity remaining - also easy 
to pressurize with just a few hand strokes.

Do you have a mighty vac?  It has a pressure port.  I don't know about the 
metal ones, but the cheap plastic one comes with an assortment of fittings 
and i think it will perform this function.  ($30 range)


BTW, the Quantum does not have ABS, so a simple gravity drain, gravity 
flush, and gravity bleeding will work.

remember if it has a pressure port or not. ... I might use the bleeder
occasionally, but am really buying it as a present for Jeff for all of the

have one in his shop at Goodyear.

I have the Motive power bleeder  
http://www.fcpgroton.com/motiveproducts.htm , don't know how i ever 
lived without it. Works just like a commercial one except dont need to 
hook an air hose.
I thought about making the homebrew one, but by the time I figured up 
the price of the parts and the fuel to chase all over the place or 
shipping charges for said parts, it actually worked out cheaper just to 
buy the Motive bleeder

That is the one in the Performance Products catalog. Actually, two of them

 Doesn't you brother-in-law have one you can use once or twice a
 year?

 If you have patience (and no ABS) the gravity method is free. In
 theory it is a pressure bleeder. Just works at a real low pressure.
