I had no difficulty in getting a cap to fit to the reservoirs on both the clutch and brake systems on my SIII. Though, there are other caps available if you have an earlier system, like the II and IIa twin reservoir for example.

How does it work? Well, you put new clean brake fluid into the bottle supplied, and attach the cap to the reservoir on your system. The other pipe connects to the spare tyre, and provides pressure to refill the reservoir as you empty it by bleeding. (TAKE NOTE..it is advised by GUNSONS that a pressure of no more than 20 PSI is used for bleeding. I used 10 PSI.)

Included in the kit are full instructions for bleeding your brakes, and also some instructions for use with different types of systems.

Quality wise…it's all sturdily put together, and will give a good few years of service (hopefully making that annual brake fluid change a lot easier) and with contacts for getting spares, any seals will be easy to replace. .

I found this tool to be very useful..it simplified the operation greatly, and also meant that I could do the job on my own. I think it is easier to use than the vacuum type, and certainly for the home user is a lot cheaper. You will still need some method of catching the used fluid, but in all fairness, you'd need that anyway. By pressurising the system in this way, the chance of drawing air back into the brake lines is greatly reduced

Prices vary..the typical price is £23.63, and I found a few retailers on the internet selling it at prices varying from £11.50 and £16.83 to £24.99. Bear in mind that online purchases will incur carriage costs. From my perspective, a good purchase

I must be fair and say for the price it's a useful tool . For me it just meant I didn't have to keep topping up the reservoir .
You still need someone to press the brake pedal to completely bleed the system .
I have used these for years and never had a moments problem with them and never failed to get a rock hard pedal. I modified mine so that instead of connecting to a tyre, I could connect to an air line with my compressor wound down to 20psi.....saves having to mess about letting air out yer tyre and then pumping up again.
Similar experience yesterday when replacing my brake fluid. With pressure at 20psi I had no trouble with the front calipers, but the rears were a different story. With nothing coming through I increased the pressure (in the tyre) to 30 psi and still no result. The manual states that 20psi is the recommended max, so, with visions of seals and pipes bursting and spraying brake fluid everywher I gave up and got Her Indoors to do the Old Fashioned Thing with the pedal, with the usual success.
Would I buy another? No.
Previous reviewer was lucky. I and other users of this device I have come across, were not so lucky. poor rating due to: cleaning up after brake fluid sprayed all over an engine compartment, waiting for ages and still no brake fluid comes through system, after a while the components go hard and become unusable even after thorough cleaning. Just some of the problems encountered. It SHOULD work so maybe I and the others were just doing something wrong. Ensure the bit that fits on top of the reservoir is absolutely tight on and does not leak. Gunson stuff is usually good.
