BRAKE BLEEDING TOOL

I am in need of the tool that holds the nipple on the combo valve open during bleeding.

Does anyone have either a part number or a source for this part? I can't seem to find one.

Ive used a pair of needle nose vice grips. I pulled the pin out with some pliers and used the needle nose vice grips to hold it open while bleeding. Or on the models where you are supposed to hold the pin closed a C clamp works good.

PIN POSITION

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE PIN IS PULLED OR PUSHED IN FOR A 1985 J-20?

You'll have to get down and look to see what type you have.
All parts stores used to sell these but not many folks actually use them anymore so they may not carry them now. Most folks just improvise.

I've never done either (Push nor pull) and I'm able to bleed my brakes just fine.

Does that mean my prop. valve is non-functional?

No, I have never done either one on any of my Jeep.
