What should i use to seal the threads of the bleeder nipples? The pressure bleeder keeps sucking air and not much brake fluid.

I use a positive pressure bleeder installed to the fluid reservoir. So 'sucking' air isn't an issue to me. I've tried a vacuum bleeder before and had the same problems... If that is what you are talking about-

its a hand pump that you can use as a vacuum or as a 'possitive pressure' pump. Its even got a pressure guage. Pretty cool tool!

I have one of those and tried to do my brakes with it. I couldn't get it to work for me for that same reason. Instead, I use another device called Eezibleed. I got it from an outfit named Auto Experts Products (see link). I've had mine about 13 years now and it still work great. I use it on both my 2002 and Mercedes as they have the same brake fluid reservoir cap (and the bleeder screws right to the reservior). Works great - At least for me.

Good luck

Kevin

stuck over the nipple. It will hold a pretty good vacuum that way. Maybe you need to find some smaller tubing. BTW, I second the rest of the panel, a positive pressure bleeder works better.
