Bleeding the Brakes

The first "to-do" on the Studebaker Champion was to bleed the brakes. My neighbor recommended the Vacula VAC180051 vacuum brake bleeder and clutch bleeder. The Vacula uses compressed air to create a powerful vacuum brake bleeder that can be used to bleed and flush hydraulic brakes and clutches.

Note: If your brake system is using synthetic/silicon brake fluid, you must continue to use silicon brake fluid. If you use a different type of brake fluid in the lines with the synthetic brake fluid, you'll need to replace the lines and start over; it's one or the other.

See the Vacula brake bleeding tool here.
