Bleed Screws -- Lockers and Brake cylinders

Post by rmel » Fri Aug 10, 2018 10:07 am

At least twice now, a bleed screw broke clean off while attempting
to bleed a line. Even with the broken piece successfully extracted,
I have not been able to find replacements for metric bleed screws,
until now! See link below.

These guys also have the most awesome brake line flaring tool I have
ever seen -- made in England. You can buy a proper die for 6mm line
(double flare) as well. Ain't cheap. Eastwood has a very similar (and less
expensive) tool but SAE only, no metric dies :(

Newbie here. Am I missing something on these bleeders. I'm getting ready to flush all my hydraulic systems on my recently purchased 710K and thought these bleeders were readily available at SAV and EI?

Well for heavens sake :D Your right !! I see that now on EI. Part # 7101366580

For the life of me I was not able to find that SKU when I went looking before.
Good to know, also good to know you can get them elsewhere. To me the key
find on this WEB site was the flaring tool for 6MM hydraulic line and a source
of Cunifer alloy 6MM line. Someday the pre-bent and terminated lines from
SAV or EI will become more difficult to find. Making our own may become a
necessity.
