I had a set in 1996, might get more answers in the other forum.

I always had to send them back for a bleed and to fix leaks, was told you needed special tools. I still have a rear brake, it's seized.

If you do find the manual, that would be great :) . Have been searching the internet and found pretty much nothing about them.

Looks like a bleed screw there on the opposite side to the hoses. Gold bit must do something too. Look for something similar on side of lever. Could be a similar set-up to bleeding Magura rim brakes?
