It doesn't need to be much, higher pressure just pushes it out faster. When I'm bleeding brakes by myself the last thing I want is to be spraying brake fluid everywhere.
Other folks have just purchased a spare brake fluid reservoir cap and installed a bike valve on it to do the same thing...
Sure, so the trick with power bleeding is you need to put pressure on the reservoir, and have enough volume that the pressure is roughly constant as you're bleeding out fluid. They make fancy caps and tanks to do this, but I only need to bleed my brakes once every couple years, so buying a tool...
As @Inyo_man noted, some folks aren't on Facebook, so here's the post, and I'll get the pictures uploaded here as well:
2001 Gen III, $4500 in Littleton, CO
The time has come to part with my 2001 Gen III. I picked up “Geoff” four years ago with the intention to build up a well-appointed...
Geoff is up for sale - currently the only location is on the Montero Garage Sale page on Facebook, if it doesn't go there I'll open it up to craigslist. I figure folks that appreciate monty's should get first dibs.
I just looked around in Amazon for one with a big bendy spring. It works fine but it's already rusting so I wouldn't recommend it. It appears to be a standard hole and plug. Don't forget to pull the relay so you don't have to hear the click every time.
My argument against comprehensive is the cost per year vs benefit ratio. If I had paid comprehensive on mine for the last 3 years it would have been as much as a new montero. I'd rather pocket the money and stash it away just in case.
Man that sucks, sorry to hear it. I was hunting this weekend and was worried about just that thing. I'd add the Lexus gx 470/460 to that list. I'd also head over to the land Rover group and ask about the LR3, I saw a few faces I remember from the montero group.
For the has smell - check your evaporative canister, mine had a crack on the top that let gas fumes out and you could smell them in the rig. A bit of epoxy work and it's all fixed. It also solved an intermittent check engine light.
