MityVac Tools and Testers from Summit Racing Equipment

Vacuum Packin’

Fun fact: the original MityVac handheld vacuum pump was designed for medical applications. Thankfully for us gearheads, someone had the bright idea to give it a try in the automotive world and make brake bleeding, fluid extraction, and compression testing much easier.

Summit Racing carries a full line of MityVac products including these:

Vacuum Brake and Clutch Bleeder Kits

Bleeding hydraulic brakes and clutches has traditionally been a two-person job. MityVac Vacuum Brake and Clutch Bleeder Kits use your workshop’s compressed air system to draw air and fluid out of hydraulic brake and clutch systems, turning a messy chore into a quick, clean, one-person job. Features include:

• Capable of extracting used brake fluid while refilling with new
• Isolated flow and pressure/vacuum valves for simple functionality and control
• Automatic shutoff to prevent overfill
• Universal bleed screw adapter conforms to most common bleed screw sizes
• Integrated muffler for quiet operation
• Redundant pressure control systems maintain peak output pressure below 30 PSI for safety
• Available with 1.3- or 2-quart capacity reservoirs
• Hose and wand, vacuum bleed hose and adapters, master cylinder refill kit included
