    It will work but it won't flush fluid through the ABS valves, just the calipers, lines & master cylinder..

      Nope... To do that you generally need a manufacturer specific scan tool..

      Looks good, never seen anyone use calipers to check the fluid level before...

        It's interesting, but how is it better than a length of clear tubing and a box end wrench?

        Will that work if there is fluid already in there, just watch for the air to come out?

        yes... Best plan is to use a syringe or something similar to pull all the fluid out of both M/C reservoirs then push fluid from the bleeders back to the M/C to refill the reservoirs..

        Do you take the bleeder out completely and squirt fluid directly into the wheel cylinder or do you attach a hose between the oil can and bleeder?

        You need the bleeder screw to put the hose on.

          I use a bleeder bottle with a cable to hang it, put a little fluid in it to cover the tube. I don’t think I can push fluid from the wheel to the master because my drum brake master has rubber check valves under the brass seats.

          Every time your brakes release the fluid returns to the master... so you pumping fluid in from the wheel cylinder, up to the master, is no different...

              Had a helper pumping holding brake pedal down and I'm not getting any fluid! Hmmm, said pump again I'm listening this time. Helper was pushing the gas pedal, it was not the wife. You have tell this helper exactly what to do. You would amazed at things that happen to my helper.
