hey everyone, have a simple question about bleeding the brakes and clutch, what size hose do I need to buy to connect to the bleed screw?

cool, thanks, just finished bleeding the brakes, now all that is left is the clutch, but I can't get one of the master cylinder screw to come off, it's stuck and stripped, any recommendations?

Might have to hammer on a deep well socket. I used one to break it loss then I used a wrench to do the bleed and a socket to tighten it back up.

ended up drilling and using an easy out, going to the store to get new screws tomorrow, at least all my bleeding is done for now, might have to drain some from the brakes since I have to replace the pads (should have done that first :oops: )
now I'm just waiting for my carb kits to get her started
