tool needed for bleeding brakes

Does anyone know where I can pickup a combination valve depressor tool(J-39177)?
What does everyone else use to bleed their ABS brakes?

Thanks

Nope, there is a tool that is used to open the valves in the ABS system so you can bleed the WHOLE system, not just the lower half.

P.S. Mine is a 10mm wrench size

Home > Vehicle Repair > Brake Tools > OTC (OTC7853) Proportioning Valve Depressor for ABS Brake Systems

Proper service procedure requires that a proportioning valve depressor on the 4WAL unit when pressure bleeding the brake system. For best results on 4WAL, use two of these depressors, one for each valve. Services a wide variety of GM utility vehicles, vans, and pickups with Kelsey Hayes anti-lock brake systems. Also works on RWAL systems and must be installed on the proportioning valve (only one depressor required for RWAL). This tool supersedes Kent Moore No. J-35856.


Availability: Usually ships the next business day.

OTC-7853$21.31

Re: tool needed for bleeding brakes

Go to summitracing.com and get speed bleeders. You can bleed your brakes by yourself! you just take the old brakes screws out , put the new ones in. and just start pumping the pedal. Run you 30bucks or so. But you can bleed your brakes as much as you want, anytime you want!
