Lotus Elan

brake bleeder source

I have been looking for speed bleeders for my Elan +2









































I have been looking for speed bleeders for my 71 +2s. I believe I need SB3824L. I don't have metric front calipers. I can find the short version but not the long ones. Does any one have a source? Or an alternative part number. Gary

Sorry for the spacing of previous post. In case it doesn't come out right I am looking for a source for the long speed bleeder, SB3824L for my 71 +2s. It does not have metric front calipers. Or an alternate part number and source. I should preview my posts. Gary

Hello Gary,

Pegasus carries the SBs in both long and short in 3/8x24 size

Good luck, sir.

As a matter of course, I replace all the bleeders on my cars with Speed Bleeders. Order them directly from Speed Bleeders. Have purchased both long and short 3/8-24 and metric units.

Thanks for the replies. StressCrax, the Pegasus link ending in 5206 is for regular long bleeders, the item ending in 5204 is for speedbleeders but the short type that is available from many sources. I did find this link to I believe speedbleeders direct that has them.

I'll order them direct. Thanks for the help. Gary

No worries Gary,

I didn't know the exact length you needed but knew Pegasus stocks several lengths. Glad you found what you needed.
