Bleeding brakes-‘68 442


Recommended Posts

Is it necessary to hold the metering valve open when flushing brake fluid/bleeding brakes on a 1968 Oldsmobile 442?


It has the factory power front disc/rear drum brakes.


The shop manual indicates a specific tool to hold the metering valve open.

If holding the metering valve open is required, can someone share a practical way to do this?  I am guessing the tool described in the shop manual is not available.


Thanks for any guidance.
