Im installing some extended brake lines what is the best way to bleed the lines? Will pr filling the new lines help?

Yes, I run fluid through the new lines before they go on the truck - just to get the insides wet- helps minimize air bubbles during that first pass of brake fluid.

Ive use the old 2 man - pump b& hold brakes method as well as the mityvav hand held pump-
THe POwer bleeder is definately worth the money - allowing you con confidently flush the entire system.

Bleed each corner starting with the wheel farthest from the master cyl- Then finish off with the LSPV

Although that is a very good product if you can afford that you can always get the one man bleed kit from autozone or advance autoparts. it simply plugs into the bleeder valve at the wheel and has a small container that you magnetically stick near the bleed and is conected via tubing. Then just fill the brake fluid resevoir and pump the brake.

I have a one man kit from Pep Boys. I agree, it works well. There is a special connector that is supposed to latch on to the bleeder screw was crap. I took it off and pushed the hose over the bleeder. Still not bad for $6.

The one man bleeder works good just a few upgrades to the kit i used there special fitting and put into a empty quart oil container so I didnt have to empty it often also i bought some line clamps which helped eliminate brake fluid from going everywhere.
