Bleed your Corvette's brakes like the pros with Motive's POWER BLEEDER hydraulic brake bleeder system. Designed for American cars and trucks with rectangular brake master cylinders - perfect for 1965-1966 Corvettes with power brakes and all 1967-1982 Corvettes. Note: Will not work on 1965-1966 standard brake Corvettes.
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, cast-aluminum master cylinder adapter and mounting hardware, clear flexible tubing, plus instructions and a full 1-year warranty.
Motive Tip for classic Corvette owners..... Use a c-clamp to hold the adapter in place. It works great and is much faster to use than the chains. Also if you are using the chains and j-hooks with wing nuts feel free to use a set of pliers on the wingnuts if needed to obtain a tight seal. We recommend bleeding pressures between 10-15psi.

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.
