Hi, Could anyone tell me if the a-60 brake fluid reservoir has a threaded cap or a push cap? The 1 1/4 inch inner cap , not the 2 1/2 inch dust cap. I think that it is a push cap but I can't remember for sure.

I have a motive power bleeder for my car and need to order the correct adapter for my trailer, and my trailer is at the cottage and I cant get access to look. I think I need the 1130 adapter which if for the threadless cap.

Please help, thanks,

The inner cap, the one actually on the actuator, is a push in cap. I've used the Motive bleeder with their adapter and it worked great.

I just bought the 0130 (includes the 1130 press fit reservoir piece)package and bled the brakes on my A-60 actuator last weekend. It worked great and saved me a bunch of time.

It was around 5 to 7 PSI.
