How do you bleed your brakes with the nipple on the bottom side?

My bleed nipple is at the top of the caliper.



Can you post up some pics of which way your calipers are?

I'll get some tomorrow Drew.

Ok, I was getting quite confused about how to correctly set up my brakes. Until today when I had a brain f@rt and everything seems to be clear now.


All I have to do is swap the brackets to the other side of the car, turn the pads around and put back together. This will keep the bleed nipple at the top and the pin at the bottom!

Ill get it done tomorrow as it should only take about 30 mins after I find all my tools lol.

Ill report back with pics tomorrow.

Any pics? I'm about to fix mine in the next few days.
Also is there a master cylinder we should use? XR6 or later model? Mine is leaking and I want to know what to replace it with.

Cheers.

i installed a AUII booster and master cylinder today, was a bit of stuffing around to try and get the booster in the right spot and where to mark the 4 new holes to be drilled , but i got it in , both the hard lines fit straight into the master cylinder , someone said you will need a adaptor but i didnt ,

bought these on friday , theres are the new DBA 4000 T3 clubspec rotor,these will be going on the new big brake setup.
