Just installed reservoir and remote bleeder. Some observations...

Reservoir could be bigger, constantly filling after couple air bleeds.

I installed a remote bleeder. OE bleeder a PITA. Borescope helps, but still PITA. Finger tip threading and unthreading. Take precautions not to allow OE bleeder tube to drop in the bell housing.

Anyone use a Motive brake/clutch bleeder kit on the Camaro? Comes with compatible clutch and brake caps? Manual bleeding sucks.

Good point I didnt mention. Used edpm cap and hose. Looking into a motive power bleeder for clutch and brakes just for convenience.

Had 7000 miles on car and fluid was dark.

Nice job! Oh, to have a shop at my disposal again...

Question for the group... in looking at the awesome mods for the relocation of the aux reservoir, I noticed some brackets being painted. Since brake fluid/hydraulic fluid is so corrosive to paint, is there any kind of paint that will not be eaten up by fluid getting spilled on it? I don't know enough about powder coating but I am thinking maybe that is the way to go? Painters out there???

Dont spill the brake fluid on the bracket. Once the cap is on and sealed your bracket will be fine.

I put towels down under it to help protect the fender wells and if you do accidentally spill some pour some water on it as fast as you can....but don't get any water in the resivoir. Keep a cup next to you ready to go.

Hey sting808- how did you get the OE bleeder screw broke loose? I bought a remote bleeder hose to but after looking at it I didn't think there was enough room to get any type of wrench in there to loosen it up. I already had my trans out for clutch and don't want to pull it out again just to add the hose.

Imjaybird- I was surprised that I was the first to post it up. If you could sell all of that for only $10 you a better man than I. Doing it manually is way to costly to make more for $10.

I could include the res. but would have to pass on the cost of $23 for it.
I would be intrested. Can you show us what you have and would the plugs be the edmp?

OE bleeder AN fitting was not tight and easy. None of my wrenches fit, so I used 1/4" drive socket and rachet. Barely fit and broke loose easy. Was messy and worried about dropping the tube in the bell housing.

Wait until you try to insert and tighten the remote bleeder extension. Borescope helps position the fitting into the thread opening, but turning that neck was a PITA. My big hands didn't help and couldn't convince the wife to do it. After ~5 minute using index finger tips, got it done.

Very Nice!


I bought some nylon washers and was going to work on shaving them down to get the resivoir level but it is such a PITA to get my hands back there. I decided to not worry with it right now.......especially if ya'll will start making these brackets.

For liability I will not be making any more of these. I am a skilled engineer and fabricator but don't run an insured shop, I don't need people blaming me for problems that may or may not be related. I am posting a drawing of the bracket so others can make it if they want. Should have it up by tomorrow.

Crude Paint drawing of bracket

I drew this up in like 10 min so be nice. I was unsure if I could post a CAD or if ne one cared ne way.
Thickness cannot be more than .125 bc the brake res. screw needs to engage with enough thread. I suggest using some thread locker!

Thanks for the drawing! I'll prob go this route once I reinstall the res. I had to go back to stock cause I had the car in for the transmission replacement due to shift issues!

Sting- I ended up ordering some AN -3 fittings with a piece of brake line to make a hard line just a little longer than the stock tube. I will post up some pics when I get the parts and get it put back together.

How to video

Not trying to take over the thread but didn't want to start a new one. Here is my how to video. It will be HD once it gets done getting processed. My fluid was really dark after only a year and about 7k. Garage kept and not diven in the rain or snow. Hell I never even opened the lid untill I seen this thread!
