... vacuum rig I made out of a glass spaghetti sauce jar powered by one of those little hand vacuum pumps. Just punch 2 holes in the lid and seal the rubber tubing in place with RTV, one side to the brake cylinder, the other to the little pump. Use a lot of tubing, make your life easier. It does work, but you have to be right on it with the nipple wrench or the air just goes back in. Those commercial "one man" units have tiny cups, not nearly enough to do a truck system IMHO. Way better having someone work the brake pedal, much faster and gets the air out better.
