Phoenix Systems patented tools for the perfect brake job. When it comes to your car or truck there is a lot of important systems that keep it moving down the road. And, while most people spend their time and money in search of speed, or good looks the failure of these things won’t necessarily threaten your life. However the failure of your brakes can kill you. You know everybody understands how important your brakes are, but when it comes to bleeding or flushing the system. Ha hah that’s where the things get iffy for a lot of folks.
Reverse Brake Bleeding.
So, for today’s Tool Tech we are going to feature some tools from Phoenix Systems that are going to completely change the way you approach your brakes and keep them working to their full potential. Okay the first thing that we’re going to look at is bleeding the brakes, now in the past the scenario has always been. You get Cousin Eddie or Aunt Thelma inside pushing on the pedal, while you’re down opening and the closing the bleed screws at the wheels and in doing this, hopefully you run all the air down and out through the bleed screws. The problem with this other than Cousin Eddie hitting the pedal at the wrong time is that you’re shoving that air in exactly the wrong direction, the air wants to rise.
MAXPRO Brake Bleeder Tool
So Phoenix systems came out with this tool called the MAXPRO and instead of pulling the air down through the lines. It forces the fluid in at the caliper or the slave cylinder. Now I know you’re probably thinking. So what’s the difference I mean fluid from the top, fluid from the bottom does it really matter. Yeah, it does, and here’s why when you inject fluid from the lowest point of the systems down here at the caliper those air bubbles are going to naturally flow up the brake line and out through the master cylinder giving you the firmest pedal possible. Another problem you’re going to run into with conventional bleeding. Is that the proportioning valve, the metering block and all that ABS stuff is designed to restrict fluid pressure coming from the master cylinder.
Phoenix Systems MAXPRO
So when you bleed that way you’re fighting against all that stuff. However these are designed to let fluid flow freely back the other way and the MAXPRO allows you to take advantage of that. This little tool here will allow the do-it-yourself or the professional mechanic to completely bleed any system in just a few minutes, including those difficult ABS systems yeah. All right here is what you get; the MAXPRO itself is a fully adjustable die-cast aluminum pump that is built to last for many, many years. It’s got a sight glass, so you always know what’s going on with your fluid and sealed hoses so you don’t end up with fluid all over your hands.
Air bubbles will exit Master Cylinder
And with the new model MAXPRO. That’s just hit the market. You can also get a light mount, and other cool accessories making this the tool to have. You also have a whole assortment of quick disconnects and fittings that allow you quickly connect to any bleeder valve or hose. All of the hoses and end fittings have a twisting locking seal. So, once again you don’t end up with fluid running all over the place. To keep from spilling your fluid the portable reservoir has a unique magnet system that allows you to mount them virtually anywhere out of the way. So basically all you have to do is fill the reservoir, connect the brake bleeder to the bleeder valve at the caliper and pump the handle, the air bubbles will exit out the reservoir of the master cylinder.
This system works great on any small hydraulic systems
And once the bubbles stop you are done. Now a couple of tips that are important for successful bleeding make sure that you prime the tool with fluid before you use it so you don’t push air up the system and make sure you burp the caliper or the wheel cylinder before you close the bleed screw so there is no air trapped inside. And in just a few short minutes you have got the best firmest pedal that you can get and the good news this is something one guy can do. No more Cousin Eddie and this system works great on any small hydraulic systems, brakes, clutches, whatever you are working on.

On top of that you can also do any other type of bleeding like vacuum bleeding that draws the fluid down through the system and out the bleeder valves. Pressure bleeding that injects pressurized fluid at the master cylinder which forces the air down and out the bleeder valves.
