19-11. BLEEDING HYDRAULIC BRAKE SYSTEM. Proper operation of the hydraulic portion
of the brake system requires a solid column of fluid (without bubbles).
It is necessary to bleed the system to expel any air which may have
entered. Need for bleeding is generally indicated by soft brake ac-
tion. Bleeding can be done manually or with pressure feed filler.
Attach bleeder tube to bleeder screw and place other end of tube in
jar or bottle, so that end is submerged in hydraulic brake fluid.
