Been flummoxed by these. I have a LOT of experience with disc brakes generally but these are just stupid.
It's this type
Which is not compatible with the normal threaded hose adapter on the bleed pipe - and pressing the hose in snugly seems to be the only way.
You have to remove a small grub screw to open the oils system. Check.
Brake lever pulled in. Check.
Syringe of oil ready to squirt in. Check.
But the oil won't squirt in without leaking out of the sides.
Am now assuming there is either something wrong with the lever but before I give up - can anyone tell me I'm doing something wrong?
