Default Re: ABS Pump Bleeder Nipple?

Finished the hardline in my car yesterday.

This is basically the kit we're going to offer to the community. This is version 1.0 with some changes to the final hard line layout before we start mass production.













When it's complete it will include instructions with pictures and all necessary hardware for a seamless install.

I am currently in the process of rebuilding my calipers/ECS SS brake lines/flush. Is bleeding the ABS unit recommended? Pedal was squishy prior to the overhaul I'm doing on the car. Is INPA needed to do this? It's loaded on my computer but I do not have the E36 adapter. Power bleeder good enough?

INPA is not needed, you can bleed it the same way you would bleed a caliper.

Attach a bleed hose/tube, crack the bleeder 1/4 turn and then close.

If you believe you have air in your system after you have tried everything else, try the ABS bleeder IMO.

Very interesting. I've never bled the ABS pump either and don't have access to the software. Would be interested in a relocation kit if it's as easy as bleeding a caliper. In theory, does activating ABS after a bleed and re-bleeding via the calipers flush out most fluid trapped in the pump? Barring a stuck air bubble of course.

Haven't forgotten about this, it's just on hold as I'm currently between jobs.

Alright, now that I'm working again I'm going to look into getting this project back off the ground.

Took the car to the track a couple weeks ago and the bleeder had zero issues, which is great. I wasn't expecting any problems but you never know once you start messing with things that aren't OEM spec.

Wanted to take a moment and share some of the work on the adapter piece.





Values have been scrubbed from the spec sheet for intellectual property reasons.

We're reaching out to machine shops this week for quotes. Making some progress for sure. Going to place an order for materials soon.

Still trying to decide on a reasonable price point for this kit, not really sure what's fair. We're not looking to gouge the community, but the two of us have spent quite a bit of time and our own money on this.
