    I changed the left rear wheel cylinder on my C20 yesterday and now i'm having trouble bleeding all the air out.

    Could someone give me some tips/techniques you use? Where would be the best place to begin bleeding it?

    Thanks any help is appreciated

    start at the far pass side pump and bleed then rear drivers pump and bleed then front pass pump and bleed and finish at front drivers pump and bleed make sure you get all air out of each befor going to the next one

    i usually gravity bleed the hole system at one time
    open all the bleeders remove the master cylinder cap
    just make sure the master stays full
    if that doesnt work then i put somebody in the truck
