Lotus Elan

Speed Bleeders

PostPost by: gino1 » Wed Sep 05, 2012 11:43 am

Hi Everyone,

I've been reading with interest on some of the sensible mods that have been carried out to Elans and am very interested in these "Speed Bleeders".

Does anyone have the correct code number of speed Bleeders to fit on the Elan ?

Is there also one for the Clutch slave cylinder too ?

Thanks

It's been a couple of years, but according to the archives, the size I used for both brakes and clutch was SB3824L.
They are great. Easy one man job.

I use them on every old car I have, and have been for years. They make any sort of fluid bleeding a one man operation.

The 3824L translates to 3/8" diameter, 24 pitch thread, Long. The 3824 is a shorter version. The "L" works well with the front calipers.
