Tip & How-To about Ford F-150
If you need to get your brakes done and you are alone but don't have time to wait for them to self bleed, here is a good way to do that(I do it every time i have to bleed my brakes). Get yourself a pipe or wooden rod something with some thickness b/c there will be some force on it. somewhere between 2' and 3' depending on how much space between your seat and the brake pedal. You can move your seat forward and back to get it to fit so it doesn't need to be an exact size. You pump your brakes a few times, hold the pedal down and stick your pipe(or whatever you have) on the brake pedal and the other end u lodge against the seat(put it on the bottom of cushion so it can't pop up and out) make it fit very snug so pedal doesn't move, before you move foot from brake. You can then get out and bleed the line. Then repeat until you have all the air out.
