You are correct, start with the right rear, then left rear, then right front then left front.

how much ya got to drink????? Razz



secure your massa on a table or other work surface.

remove the resevior cap

fill with brake fluid

use a long shaft screw driver or other impliment and push the cyl plunger in slowly. delay a second before releasing.

do this several times till bubbles stop comin out.

top off with fluid

cap off

install

find a helper.............ready? good!

the helper needs to depress the brake pedal and hold it. now connect the brake line (s). release the pedal.

go ahead and do a system bleed down all the way around just to be safe.

adjust the shoes too. Wink

Probably not a factor on bug cylinders, but if you push TOO far when bleeding it can mess up the seal on some newer m-cylinders. So Sad No! No! No! No!!!!

OH! I forgot.... When I would do the bench bleed I would plug the ports on the cylinder with my fingers before releasing the plunger so as to not pull air into the cylinder. There are also those that thread a piece of brake line into the cylinder ports, bend it up into the resevior so the end is under the fluid level, and then pump on it. Neutral
