I bought 2 of the big bottles, quarts, or close to it, I think, and I have another 1/2 from the last time I bled.

Will I run out of fluid before I run out of air Who besides Ty has done a complete purge
It takes 1 "Smartass" to fill the fluid & bleed, while another "Smartass" works the pedal!
As for how much fluid, until it runs clear & air free. Usually about 1 quart but all depends how much air you let into the system before hand!

I figure replacing the PMV is gonna let ALL the air into the system. Watch out for a low-pressure system over Oregon on Sunday.
