  • Homemade Motive Bleeder for UFP Actuators

    Pretty simple and cheap. I used a #2 stopper and a barbed fitting from Menards. Worked great.

      I have a motive but never use it after getting one of these. Just hook up the air compressor and pull the trigger. And no more spending 20-30bux per adapter.

        Looks like you need lots of adapters like the motive for specific vehicles

          They do make a pressure bleeder style like motive but I’m referring to the other one. Only thing you need to add is an adapter for air.

          Motive is great when it works and still my go to when I don’t have air and need to bleed a GM vehicle. Not happy with the Volvo or Toyota adapters they provided.

            Where did you source the stopper? I need a new one.

              Totally agree!

              See my thread from a few years back with all the parts needed to make this.

                  Worth every penny to be able to bleed easily solo though
