    Hayes bleed fitting

    I have some older Hayes Mag brakes that needs to have one of the master cylinders rebuilt, and as a result will need to be bled.

    I don't have the bleed fitting and can't find it anywhere other than expensive 'bleed kits' but I can find the fittings by themselves for a couple bucks for other brakes. Can anyone help direct me to find the older style Mag clear plastic lever bleed fitting for cheap?

    I tried Hayes c/s and they were awesome in sending me the parts needed to repair my lever for free, but they neglected to include the bleed fitting I was mainly asking for, so far it has been 5 days since I sent a follow-up upon receiving the initial parts (washer and c-clip) but no response and I'm getting antsy to repair my Bullit and ride it again

    you can see the clear plastic adapter in this picture -

    Pull the plunger from this syringe and angle upwards while you push fluid into the caliper bleed w/ another syringe. The pictured syringe seals perfectly on the Mag lever.
