    Motive Power Bleeder Qs

    Just picked up one of these units from a member on NASIOC.

    From the directions:

    I looked in my factory service manual, it doesn't specify a pressure. What PSI should I pump it up to?

    Also, what is with that little float in the brake fluid reservoir? Do I remove it before bleeding or just leave it alone or what?

    Really? How did you determine to use 28 psi when the instructions printed on the bottle say "Do not exceed 20 psi."?
