Can teflon tape be used on the bleeder screws on the calipers? Just wanted to verifty that there is no chemical reaction between the brake fluid (dot 5) and the teflon. Thanks.
Jockeyshift, I've done what you're suggesting on cars (using a Mityvac) and it worked fine. Never had a problem.jockeyshift said:I understand it's a machined compression fit inside of the caliper and that is working fine.
I am installing a dual from brake system on a 883 Hugger and want to pull a vacuum on the lines but as soon as I crack the bleeder valve, it sucks air from around the threads and I can't get all of the air out of the system. I was hoping that the teflon tape would help stop the air from leaking around the bleeders threads.
