i jsut wanted to pass along a tip that i found that REALLY helps...

when bleeding the brakes on a C3 use a primer bulb like used to prime a fuel line in a boat to pull the fuild out...

can get one at walmart for just a few dollars..

i did such and my C3 has better brakes than it has ever had before... :cheers:

Just make sure that you keep plenty of fluid in the master cylinder reservoir at all times.

If you can't get the version that works with the compressed air, this is the next best thing. Definitely worth the money IMO.
those cost REAL money.............:partyon:

I have 2 extremely expensive vacuum bleeder and never use them for brakes, use them for sucking out power steering fluid, emptying master cylinders and things like that but have no luck bleeding brakes.
I modified a master cylinder cover to hook shop air to it. I fill the master cylinder, install the top. set shop pressure at 10 psi then hook the line to the maser cylinder.
I then do one back and one front before replacing the fluid, It work quick and does a good job with no help.
