Question about 1959 Triumph TR3
Bleed slave cylinder
Posted by Anonymous on
A simple procedure.. I use a length of clear plastic tubing..about 1m will do...with a snug fit on the slave cylinder bleed screw. Simply attach one end of the tubing to this screw and the other into a clear bottle with at least 50mm of clean brake fluid, making sure the end of the tube is immersed in fluid. Personally I like to place the bottle in the engine compartment where it can be easily seen. So with everything in place, open the bleed screw, fill the reservoir to max then begin pumping. After several strokes ..perhaps 4-6..you will begin to see fluid moving up the tube. Continue pumping until fluid begins to fill the bottle, with no signs or traces of air bubbles. Be sure to check the reservoir often while pumping , topping off as required. Leaving bottle in place, slide under car, tighten bleed screw disconnect tubing then remove bottle and tubing from area. Inspect for fluid spillage and if any is found, flood with clear water, close bonnet and test drive. Good luck.
