Yes this will fit our Metric calipers and S-10 drum brake bleeders as well. It is a universal fit and works with most automotive brake bleeder screws.

The bleeder on some of the early Fords are smaller than the newer cars. You should not have any problem using this on your '78 Ford Mustang II brakes.

How does this work? What do the ends attach to?

The one end of the one man bleeder part # 91083890 would hook onto the bleeder screw and the other end you would place into a container of brake fluid. There is a spring loaded check ball in the end opposite the bleeder that lets fluid and air pass by but springs shut and wont let air back into the system. So as you pump the brakes the air escapes and bleeds the brakes by your self with no one needed to open and close the bleeder screw each time you pump the pedal.

Motive Products 0100 Pressure Brake Bleeder, Wilwood Master Cylinder
(Part #91083891)
                        

This brake pressure bleeder makes bleeding brakes a one man job. Fits Wilwood screw type master cylinder caps, many OEM manufacturer's master cylinders, and all other cars with 45mm threaded hydraulic fluid reservoir caps. Works with many Wilwood universal master cylinders, including 260-3372, 260-3374, 260-3376, 260-3378, 260-3380, and 260-5920. Will NOT work with Tilton master cylinders.

Here's how it works: A tank containing new hydraulic fluid is connected to the fluid reservoir on your vehicle and pressurized with air from a hand pump (pressure gauge ensures that the hydraulic system is not damaged due to excessive pressure). When one of the bleed valves on the vehicle is opened, old hydraulic fluid is expelled as new fluid from the tank is forced into the system.
  • Bleeding has never been easier!
  • No need for a helper to constantly pump the pedal while you open and close the bleed valves
  • Two liter tank prevents the need for constant refilling of the fluid reservoir, thereby avoiding corrosive spills
  • Fast, easy and reliable one-person operation
  • Works on hydraulic clutch systems, too
