I hit both cars with the Motive before every weekend - I always get at least a couple of bubbles from each corner.

Ordered that. Currently using vacuum operated bleeder but may like this better.

Do you happen to know which adapter mounts to the V8R Wilwood master cylinder?

Vacuum operated bleeder blows. I used one once. For about 3 seconds.

I bled my car for a year using that and won a championship. If you create 8bar (116 psi) of vacuum they actually work.

1100/1109 fits tight, but I can't pressure test it until I redo the brake lines this weekend.

How did you convert it to reverse bleed?
