Let It Bleed

Installing a master cylinder is generally an easy mechanical accomplishment with the most difficult part being bench bleeding the unit. Without the correct parts to do the job properly, bench bleeding can be a messy and wasteful chore that even the most accomplished mechanic really doesn’t like to do. It can even be a dangerous situation in a small garage where the brake fluid spray can end up ruining the paint finish on your specialty vehicle.

Wilwood is well aware of problems associated with the bench bleeding process; so in order to make the job much easier, all non-remote Wilwood tandem master cylinders (one pushrod, two outlets) are now delivered with a bench bleeder kit. The kit comes with several nylon brake fittings that can be screwed into the master cylinder ports. The fittings have a connection for a section of plastic hose that can be directed back into the master cylinder when the bleeding process is being done. By directing the brake fluid back into the master cylinder where it belongs, the mess and waste is no longer a problem. This bleeder system can be used and adapted to many other master cylinders so the kit part number 260-11593 can also be purchased separately.
