Hydraulic breaking system

My way is to start furthest from the master cylinder & work to the closest. Make sure the master cylinder remains toped up throughout the procedure. With any luck with the lid off the master you can gravity bleed it, ie: just crack the bleed nipple & fluid should start comeing out. Let the fluid bleed a little then tighten the nipple. Repeat for all for. If it will not gravity bleed let me know & i'll give you another procedure. Gravity is best though

1992 ford f350. Peddle worked fine. Then replaced pads, rotors, calipers. Bleed all lines. Now peddle goes to the floor

you have air trapeed in the system, probably in the calipers. Try gravity bleed first. If not better, then have a shop use vacuum to refill after sucking down the system.

Bleeding clutch

The best success I have bleeding my clutch is to do it in this order.
1- fill reservoir with dot 4
2-loosen bleed screw on slave cylinder and let gravity bleed
3-never let reservoir run out while gravity bleeding
4- when you see steady dripping fron bleeder screw, tighten screw.
5-top off reservoir with fluid and install top back on reservoir
6-loosen bleeder and squeeze clutch all the way in one time and hold it.
7-tighten bleeder before releasing clutch
8-repeat this step one more time
9-remove reservoir top and refill the cylnder
10-put top back on reservoir
11-pump clutch handle 5 times and hold in
12-open bleeder screw
13- repeat this step 3 times
14- you should have a good clutch
15-check fluid in reseervoir one more time to make sure it is still full

Hi I would like to drain the water out of my radiators so I can change the 2 zone valve on my heating system. It is allowing water to bypass so needs replacing but i dont want to flood the house. Please...

You first need to find the fill valve on your boiler and then shut that off. Then you need to find the drain off of your boiler or heat piping and get a hose on that. If you have a drain on the piping that is lower than the zones valve that would work the best so you dont need to drain the boiler also. Run the hose to a drain which needs to be lower than your piping oor boiler. You may have to open thebleeders on the radiators to let air in for them to drain completely. This can take a long time on some systems. You may also have to manually open the zone valves to get the pipes to drain completely. You can then change your zone valves and then open the fill valve to refill your system. Make sure that you bleed all the air out of the radiators after refilling or they will not fill completely and have diminished heat output.

Boiler unit

In a hydronic system for heating you must insure that the pressure on the boiler is maintained during the process of bleeding off the air from the system. There is a regulator for the water make-up to the system which normally maintains 12 PSI with the boiler cold. If this is stuck or fails to open you will loose the pressure on the system when bleeding the air off. Most are adjustable. Loosen lock nut on the adjustment stem and turn the screw (clockwise) to increase the pressure. Count the turns as you adjust it and return it to the original setting when you finsh bleeding off the air.
