Bleeding order requested...

My useless Haynes manual doesn't list the bleeding order of the brake system. Merely refers me to "Chapter 5" which only describes bleeding the clutch cylinder but no order given relating to brake system.

I'm assuming: Right rear, Left rear, right front (outside upper, inside upper, inside lower), clutch cylinder, left front (outside upper, inside upper, inside lower).

Is this correct? Am I missing anything?...

Here in Monterey: 68F, sunny, blue skies, dry as a bone...Hwy 1 awaits my new rear end and SS brake lines...life's good. That's what I'm Thankful for...

TIA-

I repeat this as a Mantra to myself anytime I do brakes...might make for a neat tattoo, also.

I use a pressure bleeder and never had any 'hidden' problems after using it. I have installed SS lines and (I think) used your sequence...

I'd highly recommend an Eezibleeder if you don't have a pressure bleeder. I got mine from an outfit called "Autoexperts" or the like out of Florida.

Good luck

While I was waiting for confirmation of bleeding order my pedal pushing partner has skipped out on me...next time I'll put him to work sorting small screws and fasteners while I wait...

thanks again for the help, and this is the day I finally order my pressure bleeder...

I just got one but sucks air from the threads of the bleeder nipple instead of fluid. I tried not to open the nipple too much but it still wants to suck air instead of fluid (no pun intended). I also tried sealing the threads with a little grease but it still sucks air. Barely any fluid makes it into the can. Any suggestions?
