What are you guys using to fill master cyl. with power brakes? I guess you check the level with your finger? Converted to disc brakes and gonna bleed one nite this week, so I've known this was coming, the only thig I can come up with is a funnel with a hose or a premix syringe with clear tubing. Am I missing something or is this setup this poorly thought out?

Of course it is. I don't know, but what year model is your car, is the disc brake conversion aftermarket or OEM of a different year? Did you bench bleed the master cylinder, it helps a lot, that I do know .......... I forgot once.

Funnel with flex hose at end. You can buy these at Pep Boys, etc. for a few dollars. Works great.

Lucas makes a fuel injector cleaner in a tall, slender, clear bottle. I use one of these bottles for refilling my master cylinder.

I attached a small kitchen funnel to a flexible drinking straw and it worked fine.
