    Hi,


    I'm in Baldwin, Long Island and am looking for an independent mechanic for my '89 20,000 series Silver Spur, as the dealer is psychotically expensive (and too far).

    I just got a new pair of brake spheres, as there are not enough pumps of the pedal after shutdown before the lights come on. I don't know how tight the spheres are on there, but assuming I can take them off without breaking a chain wrench, I can put the new ones on.

    My problem is that I'm guessing that even though there is a bleeder screw on each valve body, for some reason I'm expected to have to bleed the brakes anyway. Somehow, I guess that bleeder screw won't do the job for some reason.

    So, I don't have a lift, and bleeding would be too complicated for me without one.

    Billy Lang/Westminster Auto in Inwood NY is unavailable to me anymore, so is there anyone else around South Shore Nassau County who knows how to bleed the brakes for a sane price?

    Thanks,

    Larry

    The entire reservoir , brackets, lid and hardware were done in electroless nickel. It is a very common finish and brake fluid will not attack it. I would recommend installing all cover screws and use old fittings in the line ports. I removed the instruction plate on the lid and have correct rivets for it.

    Hi, just a quick query on a post of yours. Was it supposed to say electroless nickel? It is a nice finish and guess it's electroplated, but please let me know.


    Many thanks, Paul. ]

    Here they are in electroless nickel
