    It shouldn't, should it?!!
    Brake fluid is corrosive when it come to metal, paint, etc but not so much with plastics or rubber, afaik.

    It's that you just need to keep depressing the brake/clutch petal and then keep going outside and check the little bottle and hose to make sure bubble free liquid comes out of the nipple.
    The single tools in the link is worth the money I reckon. For $17, you save lot of trouble. The one man $7 brake bleeder bottle is something you can easily make at home anyway with a little bottle and a piece of hose. Even though I paid some $10 or so for it at supercrap auto, I could've made a better one at home by spending nothing. .
    Aw yeah, I was just going to connect the hose to the bleeder nipple, and the other end straight to the syringe. Use the syringe to suck air/fluid until it's full, close off the line, empty syringe, rinse and repeat.

    Also @dom14 do you have a picture of the vac line I'm supposed to plug when adjusting the timing? I went to inbox you but your message box is full. Didn't want to start a new thread.

    Sure mate. You would need a syringe sightly bigger to make it quicker though.

    The tool on ebay has the larger container, so you don't need to repeat the same action too many times, unless you have a large syringe, which might cost you around ten bucks anyway.

    P.S.
    Sorry mate.
    I just read back and realized you already have the syringe tool with large enough syringe.
    You don't need another new tool.

    Sorry mate, just had a some busy times. As mudnut posted, it's the vacuum line attached to the dizzy via the vacuum diaphragm unit.
    You can't miss it.
