Done some further reserch and found this [url="http://www.rac.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=3124"]click me[/url]
I've never heard of reverse bleeding before, are there kits available for this purpose?
Also I have visions of the resovior spilling over when reversr bleeding
and once I disconnect the supply pipe from the old master cylinder is the brake fluid going to drain out on to the floor
sorry for sounding like a big girls blouse, just got bad feelings about this one
reverse bleeding is best on a clutch system but you will need an air supply and the kit to do so and just the vacuum kit will set you back atleast £50. best to get the bleeding system that uses air from the spare tyre and have someone pump the pedal while you do this. clutches are a b1tch to bleed at times.
try and remove half the brake fluid from the resevoir before you start. the clutch only draws fluid from about half way (you will see where the pipe joins it) and the brake system draws from the bottom. so you wont have any issues if you can drain it a little and it wont affect the brakes.
