i use a griggs / wagner g-300 pneumatic bleeder unit i purchased 45 years ago for $250 it is similar to the G-300 listed on epay for $85.00, i made a lot of money with it! there are many new ones that have built in pumps and pressure gages, they range from $60-125 and should work well, my unit came with adaptors to fit most mc needs including screw in adaptors like the old dodges use. i run 30-35 psi when doing the older drum systems, both single & double, 50 or more for newer disc systems, it is recommended the drums be installed and brakes adjusted before bleeding, then start at the farthest point and work back to the mc, the pressure bleeder makes bleeding the mc a snap too as well as mico locks or other in line hydraulic locks no matter where they are in height related to the mc. the pressure bleeder makes flushing with alcohol to convert to silicone a snap, in fact i have a newer bleeder loaded with alcohol for that purpose! well woth a $75 investment!
