Subject: Re: Clutch Hose Replacement

For those who are looking for a "one person" pressurized brake/clutch hydraulic bleeder tool . . . I have a souce. As an owner of Saabs and Volvos since the mid 60s, one of the best sources of parts and accessories for Volvos is IPD (Import Parts Distributing) in Portland, OR. I just recently purchased an automatic bleeder from them. It is made by Actron Europe in the UK and is known as the "Easybleed" by IPD. Price is $28.50 from IPD, and works very well. It comes with various sizes of caps for most import cars, including all Saabs and, of course, all Volvos. IPD's catalog number for this is CQ4062. Their phone number is (800) 444-6473 and their website is <>. They also carry several items that work very well with Saabs, including a Mann oil filter (Mann W917 - Made in Germany) which is a PF13-size filter (larger than the current small-size OEM filter). These are available at $4.95 each or a case of 10 for $45.00. These filters are exact replacements for the AC-Delco PF13 which is the specified filter for 900's with the B motor. I'm sure it will work with others as well. I have no connection with IPD, just a satisfied long-term customer. Don Allen Urbana, IL
