    Default Modded my Motive Brake Bleeder

    Bought a Motive Brake Bleeder kit and it worked well on my truck...other than needing a longer chain. Tried using the kit on my wife's Mitsubishi Galant and it would not seal to save my life! The cap is plastic and would flex when tightend too much, so I decided to get a little creative. I had some uni-strut laying around so I cut a chunk out of it and placed it over the cap. This way when you tightened the thumb screws you get even pressure across the cap. It worked well...WOOHOO!

    I also added a quick-coupler between the bottle and cap to make the setup easier.
