Good question! I have no clue as to the answer though. Maybe some of the brainiacs here will pipe up with the correct response...

sure would think so. when bleeding all u do is pump the fluid through the master and back into the reservoir instead your are just pumping it down the brake lines out the bleeders. ED

I found it the other day but i keep forgetting to take a pic of it..Sometimes the inner structure rusts out and the skin is still perfect for instance a mustang deck lid.I'll post it tonight.its so simple you'll laugh...But then I'm simple minded so it all makes cents.
Awesome idea, 73-79 F series hood inner structures rust out long before the skin,unless they were undercoated then it all rusts out

My dad made a pair of these jackstands probably before I was born. I think they used to be tractor axle housings, I'm not sure. I wish I had another pair of them.

Just read the whole post and saw some really great tools. The power brake bleeder is a little tricky though if you think about it. It should work great for you painter types, especially if you have air driers and such. But if your just using a standard shop compressor you take the chance of injecting wet air directly into you master cylinder, water being the killer of brake fluid. The best power bleeding tanks actually have a diaphragm to segregate the fluid from the pressure air.
Someone, can't remember who, mentioned using a modified bug sprayer. He's on the right track, I think.

i tool that i manufactured was a set of punches out of push rods from an engine i rebuilt. they work really great and the great part is you can make them the size you need. and it you have a oxy acetelene torch you can temper them to make them stronger. like i said they work awesome.

i made my own push rod checkers out of a few different lengths of push rods. They work but they don't adjust as easily as a boughten ones, But they were free. I just cut the push rod about an inch down from one end then cut another inch off from the long piece and drilled and tapped both ends. I am sure I'm not the first person to do this but i thought i would share.
