    I know it's a ways out, but I'll be travelling through on May 5-6. Have an inspection in the Tulsa area.

    Not on the old van. Only drive it a few times a year. Gravity bled it, it is fine.

    Gravity seems to do pretty well. I've done that before using some clear vinyl tubing shoved onto the bleeder. You can watch when the bubbles stop coming out. I also tapped on the caliper to dislodge any bubbles that may have clung to a crevice inside. Ya might check em again after a few days and see if any more come out.
