Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
How do I align gears on anti-lock motor for Master Cylinder and the procedure to bleed brakes on anti-lock system?
Remove the old master cylinder before youbench bleed the new one. It sits prominently on the driver's side of the enginecompartment to the right of the engine. You can clean and reuse the oldreservoir or get a new one (some master cylinders come with one).-------Set thenew car master cylinder in a vise on your work bench or table. Clamp it intoplace, ensuring that it's level; this helps make sure air pockets don't formduring the process. Remove the supplies that came inyour bleeder kit and setthem out, so you can inventory what you have.------3-Install the reservoir onto the replacement cylinder, ifit's not already done. Find the two fittings that came with your kit and screwthem into the outlets on the side of the cylinder. Insert the two lengths ofplastic tubing from the kit into the fittings, then bend them up so they aiminto the brake fluid reservoir.--4---Cut the hoses so they stick halfway downinto the reservoir. Clip the two tubes to the lip of the reservoir to keep themin place, so you don't end up allowing air into the system or spraying brakefluid everywhere.------Fill the Car reservoir with fresh brake fluid. Putenough fluid into the reservoir to fill it just short of the maximum fill line.The hoses should extend down into the fluid to make a temporary hydraulic .----6Pump the piston on the master cylinder to pushthe brake fluid through it and into the hoses. Do this by inserting the screwdriverinto the cylinder and pushing it against the piston to start pumping the fluid.The fluid will recycle back into the reservoir, but that's okay since you usedfresh fluid.--7--Watch for the airbubbles coming out of the hoses and into the brake fluid in the reservoir. Keeppumping until all the air is out of the cylinder and bubbles no longer appear.If the hoses that came with your kit are black, you might want to buy clear onesto help you see the bubbles better.---8----Keep the hoses in the reservoir and remove thecylinder from the vise. Now you can install the primed master cylinder intoyour Car.

You can just override the abs by disconnecting the system. Then you will just have a regular braking system where you have to pump your brakes when necessary.
