2 litres of fluid is enough, make sure you get some denatured oil so you can clean it afterwards (the bleeder i mean).
I have always wondered how to properly clean my bleeder after the job, thanks for the tip. What are some readily available denatured oil that I can get (or what do you use)? Thanks!
