i was told that on the 636 the valves on there are speed valves, and that i use a compressor to draw the air out of the system.

i have a set of ss lines i want to put on today and no compressor, would i be able to manually bleed the system and get all the air out myself?

I have never heard of a 636 that came with speed bleeders. Go to a local auto part store and get a mityvac, that's all you need. I tried to bleed mine by holding the lever and opening the valve for about 2 hours with no luck. The mityvac is the best $30 I have spent.

I Changed my lines and had no probs bleeding them with just traditional methods and no special tools.I started with bleeding the master cylinder nipple first then the callipers then checked the M/C once again to finish off.Had no problems and only took minutes.

all i use also is a piece of rubber hose that fits over the bleeder screw with other end in oil pan or bottle, squeeze lever crack bleeder, tighten bleeder, release handle and repeat as necessary
