R u bored? Itching to work on a bike?

Anyone want to help me bleed brake lines? I replaced pads both front and back now I just need to get the proper lever pressure. I have a hand pump for bleeding but not having much luck. Honestly don't know if I'm operating it correctly. I have searched and followed all directions prior to posting. Located beltway and bellaire

What kind of bike are you working on? Main thing you want to do is make sure you don't ever left the brake fluid reservoir run low or you'll have to start all over again. Bleed the master if necessary first, then the left or right caliper or whichever is longest from the MC first. I honestly don't think it really matters.

To work the hand pump, install it onto the bleeder valve, pump it up to create a vacuum, crack open the bleeder valve, until all the vacuum from the pump is gone. close. and continue doing this until you got clear fluid come through the hose. Make sure you keep filling up the reservoir since it gets low fast. You'll get bubbles if the hose onto the bleeder valve is not tight and snug. A small zip tie around it can alleviate the problem

I'll give you a hand later in the afternoon when it's cooler if you still need it. I'm not really too far from you.

How does your lever feel? does it feel spongy? Does it go all the way to the grip? No visible leaks around the caliper pistons/seals?
