    I starting a seperate thread with this question cause it was buried in another thread of mine. Going through brake bleeding hell at the moment and I saw this in my '95 FSM.

    *Be sure to bleed the wheel cylinder furthest from the master cylinder

    *Bleed the by-pass pipe.

    So, what's the by-pass pipe? I can't find any reference to it anywhere else in the manual. I'm guessing it's the LSVP, since the LSVP has a by-pass pipe attached to it. I've bleed the LSVP with it's normal bleeder and if that's all it means, then find, but if there's something I'm missing, I'd sure like to know it.

    I wondering if the "by-pass pipe" between the LSVP and the ABS box somehow traps air and is the culprit for making it so difficult to bleed LC80s? Is there another way to bleed this pipe?

    Thanks for any help.
