I was initially disappointed with this product. The paper instructions did not make it clear what all the different parts were for, and in fact I think it referred to a different model. The drawings were small and not clear. It has a DVD, which I did not view. Perhaps that is more thorough and clear. The brake fluid bottle adapter sort of worked. The hand pump sort of worked too - once filled with fluid, I had to manually retract the handle after every stroke, since the spring couldn't do it. This was awkward and pretty much took two hands. The Luer fittings are prone to unscrewing and falling off. The plastic pump handle seems strong enough, but the pivot is likely to wear out if you use it a lot. But in the end it did the job beautifully and in about 15 minutes, where hours of pedal pumping had not. The bleeder valve fitting fit nicely and did not pop off or leak.
