As for fluid, here is what worked well for me:
- Loosen up the bleeder so it is "just" tight enough to not leak.
- Get a piece of clear tubing (Maybe 1/4 in. id) that just fits over the bleeder screw.... Run the other end into a bucket.
- Open the master cylinder and have new brake fluid ready.
Lock a small vice grip onto the bleeder - Over the tube - so it stays.
Open the bleeder... then squeeze the brake and HOLD!
Close the Bleeder.
Repeat the open-squeeze-close-release procedure.
Add new fluid to Mstr Cyl when it gets low.
You should see fluid slowly run through the tube into the bucket.
Repeat the procedure until you are sure new fluid has passed through the system.
Hope this helps.
(Oh... make sure you are using the correct fluid type.)
