    Yes to AIR COMPRESSOR

    Many of you already own an air compressor.
    No need to buy Motive Power Bleeder etc.
    With my trick, it costs about $8 for the cap and you are all set to go.
    You will LOVE this trick using ATE Brake Cap!

    Mitivac kit is easy to use and cheap. I paid 29.99

    at Autozone and I had a $20.00 rewards card, so ended up being 10usd.

    works fine and simple one person job. I removed all fluid from the 840 and bled the system in about 1 hour 20 minutes. The hardest part was to move around with a jack and tools and lift each corner.

    No air, no brake issues. I used a non-synthetic DOT4 fluid as the synthetic is good but retains too much moisture so you need to change every year which I don't want to do.
