On my Miller I used two callipers. To do this I had to switch to location of the bleeder on one, so that I could
run them opposed to each other with both bleeders at the top.
I have attached a photo........keeping in mind that the chassis is upside down in this picture, and you are seeing
the Banjo fittings used for the inlets.

Just comin' in from our early morning walkabout, dang weather turned single digits
again. Wind is blowing a steady 25mph and gusting way more than that, dang near
blew my toup right off'n me head!!!!
And.......so much for bench bleeding, which is often talked about but seldom practiced.
Glad to hear that was the only problem, we live and learn don't we. You guys are using
the Nylon brake hose of course, right? I've see guys blame the plastic brake line for their
lack of or spongy brakes, when it's always air that is creating the problem.
Theoretically, Archimedes' principle states, that the buoyant force on an object is
equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. In other words, every object,
the air bubble in this case, is buoyed upwards by a force equal to the weight of the
fluid the object displaces. We can clear a system of air downward, which we do when
bleeding the brakes of a car that is up on a rack....if we flush enough fluid out, fast enough
to prevent the air from rising. But often we give the air a chance to rise back up in the system
making the job seem impossible to clear or just taking a lot longer to get a clear flow.
Justin, next time try reverse bleeding. Apply the fluid from the lowest point and bleed it
back to the master cylinder.

Brian.....I'm not even gonna bring up the matter of.......how simple it would be to
swing that engine mount on the axle and.......ok....here we go.......put some real
springs on that machine. Gee.......I'll bet you never ever thought about that did you!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like a good project for next winter, maybe? By the way.....how do you keep
all that sand blasted stuff from rusting up? When I weld up something the next day
she already starting to scab over around the heat effected zones, I'd hate to see
what the whole frame would look like if it were sand blasted.

Speaking of ice tires....I was watching the the X-games, Harley Davidson Snow Hill Climb.
Man some of those bikes look like they have 16 penny nails poking out of the rear tires.

Not to steal your thread Justin.......but here is a picture of my Henry J that I sandblasted at least 18 years
ago. and it is still in that raw state up in my barn. It has NO Rust on it yet, as it is very dry here...No Humidity!
But Remember! For those of you that heard of "Soda Blasting" RUN! NEVER EVER have anything that is made
of metal Soda Blasted. The stories I could tell you would scare you for life!

Brian,
That is unfair posting such devilish material here. Brings back memories of the first straight line car back in high school Studebaker powered C/Gas turned in the 14s before it burned up in a garage fire.

Justin,
I would bet you could almost do a 360 in a straight line with enough speed and those tires looks like too much fun!

Now I am really jealous!sad smiley I am getting my tires mounted tomorrow!
But, took a day off from the shop today to run errands in Kelowna.
Did see the 208 CC motors that came on sale for $99.95 at Princess,
but they were all gone.....as the sale that started Tuesday and they only
had one pallet of them??confused smiley
Hope Ed got one, as he was waiting for this sale!
There is a little snow and plenty of ice on the little lake just up the road from us,
so it would be fun to have the Ice Racer ready at this point????
Maybe next weekend?

Well, no kids on sleds.
Pretty deep snow for these parts, though!

You're not kidding!
About 7" snow, and with 4" clearance I had to get out and drag it a few times!
