So when I got Phoenix V-12 and open it my first impression was what is all these fitting for. I just want to bleed my brakes and flush the system. So if you think this can be done in ten minutes like the adds say I got some news for you. It will take that long to jack up the vehicle, than remove the wheels. If your master cyclinder in on a slant you will have to jack the rear up to level it. wow, now of this was in the ad. I have always done my brakes with someone working the brake pedal and me turning the bleeder a few times till the air is out. Now I feel I have to go to college and get a degree to remember all the steps I have to do with the Phoenix. Sure you can do it by your self and that is what the ad says. hey, don't forget to buy a brake pedal depresser or make one. your will need it to use the Phoenix. Also not in the ad. So after reading and watching the video many times I was ready to give it a try. Then reality set in and I did it the old way with a friend a put the Phoenix for sale. Great product though. I hope this helps.

I first used my old Rimac pressure bleeder but still had air in the system. I used the V-12 and reversed bleed the system. I had a firm pedal the first time and no mess. Great tool for an individual working in their garage. Plus,got a great price at AutoAnything.

The v-12 brake kit solved my problem. It allowed us to get a full pedal on my 75 corvette. The best investment we could have made. The tool was easy to use and helped us get my car on the road again.

I was one of those people that had someone pumping the brake to get the brakes bled.But I would saw Phoenix V-12 on T.V. I saw Stacy David using the tool on his show.I was impressed by it.So I took the plunge and bought it.A few weeks before I found my brake lines on my old dodge van were rusted thru.So I knew I had a tough job ahead of me and definitely was going to need to try this tool out.Well it worked great.I plan on changing my brake lines on my car so this tool is going to get some use.

This product worked so well. I am going to recommend it to everyone I know. Once you understand how to use it. (It comes with a great tutorial DVD and written instructions w/diagrams.) It took me less than five minutes to bleed my clutch hydraulic system. I don't know how I got along all these years without it.

This is truly a one person job that will really get all the air out of your brake lines. I put it together in 10 minutes and 45 minutes later I had flushed all the old brake fluid from the entire brake system and ended up with completely clear and air free brake fluid throughout the system.

With this type of system you start with the bleed screw farthest away from the master cylinder and work your way to the closest bleed screw. Since you have a dual m/c, just treat each m/c as its own system and bleed from farthest to closest. Thank youflag Accept Answer
