Motive Brake Bleeder Warning
So I bought my Motive brake bleeding system seven years ago. It came with clear/transparent hoses so you can see the fluid flowing. But recently I had three hose bursts in a row. The first was near the connection on the pressure unit and I thought it was probably just due to having been stored with a bit of a kink in it. So I cut off a few inches, reattached and tried again. It promptly burst again right about the middle of the hose. I went to the auto parts store and bought some real brake hose to replace the main hose. Then immediately the smaller diameter short hose on the adapter burst. A google search turns up numerous similar stories. Luckily it all just went on the floor and not on my exterior paint or anything critical. Anybody who has one of these tools, I recommend to replace ALL the hoses immediately before you use it again. I'd used it probably six or seven times in six years and it was fine, but I don't think those clear hoses are really rated for brake fluid and eventually were compromised by DOT 3/4 exposure. Other than the original hoses, I still like the unit and the adapters work fine.
On another note, if you are not driving your Supra very often, be sure to keep up with the maintenance, set yourself a calendar reminder or something as three years quickly turns into seven. Seems like just yesterday when I flushed the brake fluid last but checking my records it was way back in 2012 when I bought the bleeder. I had gotten the Supra out for some exercise a few weeks ago as I try to do once a month and it was pulling to the right. I wound up rebuilding both front calipers. DOT3 does not age gracefully.
