Ah, so how did we get brake fluid on the linings? =;

FYI, I usually use a small piece of tygon tubing connected to those bleeders and dump it in a Coke can or similar container. You will get some seepage around that fitting but not enough to ruin the pads.

But hell yeah!! Glad you finally got it figgered out as there's nothing worse than having a BUNCH of get up and go and not enough WOAH! =;

Humm :-k lets see now. @ 145 MPH you had to be there in like 9.90 something on the ET? :-k

It's good to hear you got it sorted out and we were able to help. It really doesn't take much brake fluid to ruin a set of pads. Like Ken said it's a good idea to use a piece of hose (small vacuum hose will work) and a small container to catch it in.
