mityvac. orrrrr get a squirt bottle and some tubing. Empty the master cylinder. slowly squeeze brake fluid from the brake caliper zirt UP into the master cyllinder, from the bottom up. empty the master again and do the same from the other side. should do it. Without a mity vac, u are trying to force the air out from the top to the bottom and air wants to rise so u can spend days trying the pump and bleed way.
later

would this also help with a little brake problem I have? I was changing out my brake pads on the front for new shiny Galfers, and noticed the set of pads on the left side were worn to shiff but the set on the right were near brand new looking, minus the road dirt... should I just bleed my system or is something seriously wrong here?
