Not seen these before the Stahlbus bleeder valve.

Very nice but very expensive when one vacuum brake bleeder will do the same job as any number of these...  Confused

There have been several versions of this over the years. I can remember fitting similar valve based bleed nipples 20 years ago or more.
Bit of tube sealed at the other end with a slit in the tube does the same job.
As does a vacuum system, a pressure system and using syrings to push the fluid through.

That's ingenious ! Smile

Come to think of it, wouldn't a spray head work as a vacuum pump ? Must try it sometimes.

It might if you could connect to the bleed nipple. But i don't know how the plastic might fare with brake fluid.
