    Iv got myself a gunson eezibleed kit hoping to bleed my brake
    Is it just a case of connecting it to a spare tyre at 20psi then connect to brake resourvour and undo each nipple at a time?
    Do i need to do both nipple on the master cylinder
    O have searched but no definite answer to what i need to know
    Thanks in advance

    Are you flushing the system or just bleeding a certain corner?, if the master cylinder has not gone dry you shouldnt need to touch it...
    Is 20 psi on the instructions? seems quite high

    Gunson say a max of 20psi iirc... I normally use 15psi...

    The bleeder has instructions does it not for normal bleeding operation?

    I normally bleed drivers side rear, passenger side rear, drivers side front, passenger side front then both MC nipples/// but as Dave said there shouldn't be any reason to do the MC unless after a full bleed the pedal travel is still long... have done a few full bleeds that have not dropped the level in the reservoir but still needed the MC to be bleed to get the pedal up... I would advise bleeding the clutch too as this uses the same fluid

    To bleed the clutch, is it the single bleed nipple on top of the gear box housing?
