Where to buy big syringe?

Recommended Posts

I have a mity vac, but thought I'd try the pressure fill method this time, can't seem to find a large enough clear syringe that can hold a bottle of brake fluid..

Doesn't need to be large enough to hold a whole bottle.

If you run out, close the bleeder & refill. Brake system doesn't really take that much fluid to fill anyway.

Search for a syringe with "Catheter Tip" or "Irrigation Tip" 60cc (ml).

Connect a piece of tubing to it and go.

Thanks guys, i tried local stores n.i.s, found a 100ml plastic syringe online for a few bucks. Looks like it should be fine. Now to get these pistons out of the caliper for the rebuild, air nozzle gets one out..

Walmart has large syringes for measuring premix oil for 2Ts.

Motion Pro has a syringe for meauring fork oil.

I have both, the Walmart is bigger and would be best for brake bleeding.

You can use the MightyVac to back feed the system, just move the hose from the vacuum port to the pressure port to pressurize the reservoir.

Another way to back bleed that I use if the caliper has been removed is to use compressed air to extend the pistons out against the pads and then fill the caliper with fluid via the banjo port. Rotate the caliper to get all of the air bubles to the port, then connect the hose and pry the pads apart to push fluid back up the hose to the MC. Mount caliper and operate the lever to move the pads to the rotor; done.
