Did a little research on speed bleeders. There are dozens of sizes listed , but I could find none listed for MG. Help, will be needing them soon. Last time I bled the system it wasn' t a big problem , but took forever. Welcome any and all pm s on the matter.JMconfused smiley

James,

Robert Kirk, who is active on this site, sells them.


If he's out, try Amazon or your local AutoZone or Advance Auto.


Order by thread size... IIRC you need one pair of 3/8x24 and one pair of 1/4x28. I'd suggest getting one for the clutch slave also.

I use them and have been happy with them so far. Makes single handed bleeding much easier.

In looking, I've found Russell and Dorman make them in the right size. Russell seems to be better reviewed. Here are some Amazon links:

Front Brakes
Rear Brakes

Also thanking for the info. So, 2 different sizes....
And this is for a 1975-80 Midget 1500? or for all Midgets?
Thanks.

That's what I used on my 1970 Midget. According to Moss, the bleeders were the same from late 948 motors through the 1500s, assuming front disc brakes.

Caution, You MAY find that the rears are not as originally specified. Newly made rear cylinders may have metric bleeders depending on brand, source, etc. Best to check before ordering.
