Anybody here ever actually torque their brake bleeder screws to a certain specification? i'd like to change out my brake fluid, its' been almost 2 years now, and my concern is that if i don't make it tight enough it will work itslef loose while driving the car. i also don't wanna break off the screw. both haynes and chilton don't give a torque spec in their manuals. so today i put the rear on jackstands and i just loosened the wheel cylinder bleeder screw a tiny bit (and used my mityvac pump to suck out the small amount of fluid that came out) then i used my inch-lbs torque wrench and torqued it to 40 inch-lbs. i couldn't get it any tighter so i test drove it and it works fine. just curious to see if anyone here torques them down or knows of the actual torque spec to them. Also has anyone here had luck with pressure bleeders? I'm considering buying one. any feedback would help thanks!!
