Bleed your Corvette's brakes like the pros with Motive's POWER BLEEDER hydraulic brake bleeder system. Designed early model American cars and trucks with threaded master cylinder reservoir - perfect for 1953-1962 Corvettes with the factory master cylinder (see note below).

POWER BLEEDER's simple one-person operation provides a safe and effective way to flush and bleed your Corvette's brakes. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, absorbing water from the atmosphere, which lowers its boiling point and causing corrosion. In addition, particulate contamination--microscopic particles of rust and rubber--can increase wear of moving brake components. Older Corvettes can be especially affected by the continual use of "old dirty" brake fluid.

Motive's POWER BLEEDER is easy to pressurize, 2-quart capacity tank includes a pressure gauge to eliminate the potential of over-pressurization. Also the typical method of brake pedal pumping can actually damage your master cylinder as the movement of pedal past the piston's normal travel can be rip internal seals on areas of that bore that are rusted due to contaminated brake fluid. Decreasing master cylinder life.

The POWER BLEED includes everything need to properly flush and bleed your Corvette's brakes. Kit includes patent pending pressure/reservoir tank with gauge, threaded master cylinder adapter and mounting hardware, clear flexible tubing, plus instructions and a full 1-year warranty.

Note: Includes a 1 3/16" adapter for threading into the master cylinder cap opening found on original master cylinders. Aftermarket 1953-1962 Corvette master cylinders feature a 1 5/8" fill cap. See Zip # DB-860 for the 1 5/8" adapter for the aftermarket master cylinder.

In 1998, Matt Newman was in his garage trying to bleed the clutch on his BMW, but he couldn’t find a decent tool for less than $200, so he built the Power Bleeder. Since ‘98, the Power Bleeder has been sold across the nation, and is often praised as one of the best brake bleeding tools on the market. Matt Newman no longer owns Motive Products, but the current owners, Marco and Eric, are constantly looking for ways to improve Motive’s products, and Zip is proud to partner with them in bringing Motive Brake Bleeding to the Corvette community.
