Why not bleed your brakes at the same time? Get rid of all the crud in the calipers and put some fresh fluid in. Does wonders. Only adds another 30 odd minutes to the exercise, and can quite easily be done by one person.

i dont do that because when i used to it years ago on my crappy datsun and corolla i ended up having to replace the master cylinder.....when the piston moves back and forth the full distance it used to damage the seals due to corrosion inside the master cyl

im a strong believer in if its not broke dont fix it

I use a vacuum bleeder to bleed brakes, no pumping required.
If the M/cyl sh!ts itself from pumping, then it wasn't far from needing replacing then, eh???

you don't have to push the pedal all the way to the floor to bleed it. just short stroke it about the same distance you do when braking and you don't cause any damage
