Does anyone have a good pressure bleed kit they could loan me for a few days.
 
I am trying to get my brakes initialized and they are being stubborn.  ive never had good luck gravity bleeding or vaccum bleeding a dry system.  pressure bleed is what the gm service manual lists for a dry system and it was I usually do on modern cars.
 
this is driving me nuts.  please let me know if you have one i could borrow..  else ill just buy one. 
 
thanks

Ben, I've got a good one here at the house with the correct master cyl. attachment, but...shipping it might be a pain. You can build on yourself fairly cheaply. I think Jim(Norsky) had a post with pics here somewhere.
You're more than welcome to use mine, but it would take a while before I could get time to get it shipped to ya...unless you wanna take a little road trip across the border...Wink

kit came in friday.  within 20 minutes the entire system was pushing fresh fluid.  I am really more irritated that I wasted a week on it before giving up and buying the tool.
