Um yea, the BRAKES, can be a challenge for those who don‘t have experience. And if you are going to produce a video, for prosperity, doublecheck the spelling.

And maybe you know now, but the Reservoir is not pressurized therefore you cannot blow it up no matter how hard you pump those brakes.

Huh? I never said that pumping the brakes could blow up the reservoir.

Morning all, i don't like the idea of jumping on other peoples posts and confusing issues so my apologies. After reading up on the fab forum lifesaver i came across a comment from "Okyou'reabeast" (not the 1st time) that may well have sorted my issue. He said "make sure you don't drain the back box in the reservoir" well i must admit i think i did. Oh the shame. He also said how you should fill the reservoir "right to the tippy top" ( love that phrase) he was right, reservoir shows full but on top up, bubbles appear and level doesn't change until it fills back box. After this several pumps in i got a little resistance. Hoorah, it was late last night so never continued but shamefully confident my "back box" was empty. I have to say i wonder at the sense of a clearish reservoir being provided so you can see the level of fluid inside then having a secret "back bit" that you can't see that can empty, ok i know nothing but makes no sense to me, sneaky Germans. Thanks all have a great day, oh and thoughts go out to those poor guys in North Carolina, Roncallo, Nobby and co. having to sit about and drink all that beer while us guys are out there in the muck and the bullets …….well brake fluid and grease at least.

Yes some people spell really good and have really good grammar. Some people fix cars really good and have poor spelling and grammar.

But when your trying to fix your car, who's post do you want to read?

I promise I will spell check my video.
nobby and Rorywquin like this.

You know I only say this because lots of videos the tech doesn’t say a word and you have to read the text. And those homonyms are a bitch when you are not paying attention. And l admit I make plenty of spelling mistakes my self. Sorry

Post #9

I doubt that I could have applied pressure sufficient to break the blockage while not exceeding the pressure limits of the fluid reservoir but I agree if your lines are clear, pressure from above would be the preferred method.


You said “while not exceeding the pressure limits of the fluid reservoir” which by my interpretation means you though it was pressurized.

You miss-read the context of my statement... I was replying to @nobby saying that he preferred the pressure from above method. He included a picture of an air adapter affixed to a modified fluid reservoir cap.
Reread the entire #9 post and you will see the correct context.

I rather use pressure from above....and I can do it all without an assistant....including the slave for my clutch.

In other words... it would require way more than the few psi that is applied using the pressurized reservoir method in order to break whatever blockage I was encountering in the lines.
