I'm in the (slow) process of installing front disk brakes on my 1967 El Camino. The instructions are telling me to bleed the master cylinder in a vise. The only vice that I have in a dinky little $25 one that doesn't hold the master cylinder very well. Upon thinking on how to solve this problem I came up with the idea to connect the master cylinder to the booster and bleed it in the vehicle.
Does it really make a difference where I bleed the master cylinder?
The rest of the story: The kit came with a master cylinder bleeder kit that has some tubing that plugs into the ports for the brake lines and drains the fluid back into the reservoir. That is what leads me to believe that bleeding the master cylinder in place will be easier and have less risk of spilling any brake fluid while I move the cylinder from the room the vise is in to getting it put in place under the hood.
