    I haven't used it yet as I need to replace the MC again. Stinking hot today. Might have a go later this evening when it cools off.

    But it all looks like it will work. I actually held off of buying it because I hadn't measured the MC. The 105 kit will work fine. Has about 3/16 - 1/4 fairly hard rubber panel on it. I think people may have issues because they are over tightening it, but I'll find out soon.

    Cheapest price I found was on Amazon at $66 + tax. Shipping states 10 days which also put me off but I got it in 5 days.

    The lip of the reservoir is not level. It is high in the center and low at the ends. Could be a problem.

    Bleeding new MC. I've always been in a rush to do this but it seems patience pays off. I give it a couple strokes, waiting at least 30 secs between each, and then walk away. When I come back 10-20 mins later air comes out with just 1/8" stroke. I thought I was done and walked the dogs for 20 mins and when I came back loads air came out. I think I'm pretty much done now and it's definitely the least effort I've ever had to put into it.

    Not quite. I still keep finding tiny bits more if I wait. I'm determined not to *$#* it up this time though.

    They sure are. My dumbass moves haven't helped.

    I'm starting to feel like I'm going in circles with the bleeding. I guess time will tell

    From the manual, the MC should be tilted slightly down. I’ve heard there’s a reason for it, but don’t remember the specifics.

    I had noticed that tilting it got air out. But haven't seen that. Thanks.

    This one is leaking. It won't bleed. Not my fault this time.

    Again got hassle for a replacement.

    I didn't use the bleed kit and just followed the GM instructions. I think it's good to go.

    Question: If there's air in the MC does it stay trapped in it or does it get pushed out when bleeding?

    I've been under the impression it would stay trapped. but the GM instructions say it reduces time bleeding and is why I asked.
