Pack the hole with heavy grease and using a dummy input shaft, hydrolic the
thing out by usein a hammer as pressure. J C Whitney and Harbor Freight
both sell pilot bearing removers.

Don't know if it's any better but I always use the brown aircraft
sealer on press in seals (national type) on the surface that touches
the bore it's pressed into, also on any "paper" type gaskets such as
water pumps, thermostate housings and front covers etc. but you
wouldn't want to use that anywhere there is movement such as rubber
gaskets etc..

I can remember the bearing very well but can't remember what the seal
looks like so I guess I'm no help here :-)

Subject: Re: Bleeding Brakes

A plate clamps on top of the MC resevour. Brake fluid is forced through a
hole in the plate. Neat little tool, but costs about $300 with plates for
various MCs. Most use air pressure to pressure a tank full of brake fluid.

Subject: Re: Bleeding Brakes

The best success I've ever had is to use gravity.
But there is a trick to it. I'll cover pressure bleeding
later.

I've tried the one way valve apparatus too.

The trick is to use a LONG clear plastic hose. Place
it over the bleed nipple and route it immediately UP
and over the tire, do not go down with it. Open the
bleed nipple and let gravity (or pressure assist) force
air out of the line and the air travels UP the tube to the
top of the tire. After getting the bubble up there, carefully
manipulate the hose to get the bubble to continue
traveling to the end of the hose and into a clear container.
Now you have a siphon assisting the bleeding into the jar.

After the major bubbles are out of the system, one can
SINGLEHANDEDLY bleed. Slowly press the brake pedal
and force more fluid through the lines. Of course,
keep an eye on fluid level.

Pressure bleeding. I used a Mity Mite vacuum unit
as my pressure source. Being paranoid about over
pressurizing, I fitted a pressure gauge into the line,
don't worry about doing that, the Mity Mite maxes out
at atmospheric pressure (14 psi), not enough to damage
any brake system.

I have a spare vehicle that included a fluid reservoir cap
(non Ford truck) that is plastic. I drilled out the small vent
hole and installed a threaded/barb fitting for drip irrigation
systems into the hole. It leaked a little, but not enough
to prevent pressurization. With a long hose between the
Mity Mite and the reservoir, I could pump at the same time
see what was coming out of the bleed fitting through
the clear tubing. Should be able to do this with a metal
cap too.

Whew, long winded, but . . . . . . . hopes this helps.

Ok, so how would one pressure bleed the brakes? With the master
cylinder at rest the ports to the resivoir should be open so fluid
could conceiveably be pushed backward through the bleeders but what
equipment would you use? Squeeze bottle? Pump? Another master
cylinder?

You can order headers from companies such as Performance Automotive Wholesale

I dont know about pre-built dual exhausts....I have always gone to a decent

can customize things to look nicer and make sure you get a decent size

I did this too and found I had to give it a little push with the
brake pedal to get it started. The problem I see with all these
ideas is the bleeder is loose in it's thread and will let air back
in if you don't seal the threads with something. I plan on using
teflon tape since I think teflon dope will get into the system too
easily but the tape can be controlled somewhat better. The check
ball bleeders I mentioned have sealed threads for this purpose
(plastic coating or something I think)
