Using fire to seal air in brake flush...
I read or seen this somewhere and can't seem to find it anymore. I am planning on flushing and replacing my brake fluid and I read/seen somewhere someone lighting the tip of the hose for like a second and then placing it onto the bleeder nipple to get an air tight seal. The fire expands the end of the hose and then when placing it onto the bleeder nipple, it cools and sort of conforms to the shape of the nipple, if that makes sense. Lol, And then when your done, you can just re-burn that part or can cut it off and repeat the process. this is not me talking, just got it from somewhere but can't remember where. Has anyone else tried this?
