    Hi,

    All my fluids are changed except brakes. I'd like to change the brake fluid and be done, and I'd like to use my Motive Power Bleeder. I notice the Master Cylinder does not have a threaded cap... is there an adaptor, or another brand power bleeder, that will work with the master cylinder in our trucks?

    Thanks.

    I use the Motive “general purpose” cap. Needs 2 wood clamps to get a proper seal.

    Whoa nice, I tried once to get the motive universal adapter to work on the Tacoma but wasn't successful. Just ordered a BA10 and some fittings for my upcoming rear brake line replacement.

    Can confirm the Power Probe BA10 works great on a first gen brake reservoir. Also fit the separate clutch reservoir. Place BA10 on the reservoir, turn the three knobs on the edge to engage the clamps on the lip. Then tighten the central knob to expand the o-ring to create a tight seal.

    I used it as an excuse to switch the Motive over to quick connects. The parts that Motive sells are 'Industrial', the Power Probe is 'Automotive'.
