Re: 2008 LT front brake bleeding procedure
Once you hook up the tubing to the bleeder just go ahead and open it slightly. Hold the other end at the reservoir with your hand and you can run the pump with your foot on the rear pedal as these are linked brakes. One man operation. 3/16 might be a bit big but I don't know what size I have been using (1/8 - 3/16??). As long as it is a snug fit when dry. Oh and one more thing. Wedge some wooden shims in or remove the caliper again and push back the pistons until they are flush and wedge them that way during the bleed as it will minimize the trapped air in the caliper.
