Like any pressure bleeder, it fills the master cylinder full all
the way to the top, this makes a mess when you go to remove it
from the master cylinder... possibly causing paint damage from
the brake fluid spill.
Better would be to just buy the cap adaptors that they sell as
needed and then install appropriate fitting so that an air pump
can be used to make the needed pressure. I used a spare radiator
pressure pump and some airline quick disconnects, I think a
bicycle tire pump would probably work pretty well also with some
adaptation. 5 - 10 PSI is usually sufficient to bleed brakes.
The end result is just as good, but less messy.
Saw some bleeders you install at each wheel. They look a bit like zerk
fittings. Inside is a one way valve. When you open, the fluid can flow
out (gravity) but air does not enter. Think both Summit and Jegs carry
