Post Where to buy a power bleeder?

Does anybody know where to buy a power bleeder locally? I'd prefer somewhere around Lowell, Fitchburg, Worcester. But if you've seen it anywhere, please let me know. I heard that they are available through the bavarian autosport catalog, but I need one tonight. Thanks.

I've had very good luck over the years with the MityVac type of system. It's a vacuum pump with a plastic cup to catch the old fluid. The lid of the jar has two hose fittings. One hose leads to the pump and the other attaches to the bleed screw. You pump up the hand held pump and then open the bleed valve, it sucks the fluid through the brake lines without having to pump the pedal. I've used it on several cars for beeding brakes and clutch systems.

If you get one, buy the one that has a vacuum guage. You can then use the pump device to test other emmissions related items on the car.

That sounds like a nice system. Where do they sell them?
