8 - 1010 for all 4 corners
Am working on the clutch fitment. They are sending me 7x1.0l and 8x1.0l as the SB8125L I had handy had too coarse a pitch. This will be a HUGE addition considering location of that little bastard! Will update within the week. If someone thinks of it, transfer to the track parts zone please.

8 - 1010? You mean SB1010 or 10mmx1.0? It's almost time for me to do this and although I have a vacuum kit for bleeding brakes I'd like to switch out for speedbleeders in case I choose to go old school.

Speed Bleeder fitment for the clutch is SB7100. Getting old one off not so bad, but the sealer on threads of new one make PLACING FROM UP TOP ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. ASK ME HOW I KNOW. (IT ONLY TOOK 1HR TO FIND IT AFTER IT SLIPPED FROM MY FINGERS, THEN ANOTHER HOUR TO FISH IT OUT). TOOK 5 MINUTES TO PLACE IN FROM BELOW (WATCH YOUR EYES!!)

This may be the single most important mod I do on my S as even if fluid does get cooked at the track, I can bleed it in 5 minutes!!

She goes for first track day on Thursday with a crisp 1000 miles on her.

So is this the piece?
Amazon.com: Edelbrock/Russell 639560 Speed Bleeder: Automotive

A search for SB1010 turns up the Goodridge speed bleeder, which according to at least one reviewer is meant for motorcycles only. And generally has pretty crappy comments. But looks to be the same size as the Elderbrock piece above

Pardon my ignorance, I really want to swap my brake fluid on the '11 Base Evora I just got, but if there's a way to screw up the job, I'll find it.

Check valve is pretty simple technology, but I guess not as fail-safe as non-valved bleeders. One guy reports the thing failing on him and pedal going to the floor ... does make me a little skeptical. Steve

Thanks, think I'm going to order and opt for the Stainless versions.

I believe Russell and Goodridge have been licensed to either make or just brand, they all cite the same patents. Not sure why people are over tightening, both Speedbleeder and Russell website post install instructions and warn to not over tighten after seating.

10+ yrs of use No issues. Wore out a set on Elise. Used to use 12pts, but now use 6pts on everything.

I filled my tool boxes home and track with 6pts for same reason. To keep a few strategic 12pt sockets in bottom only for use on bolts bungled up by service shops and already too worn to fit a 6 pt on.

What is the thread and pitch size for the Elise?
You need 4 SB1010 and 4 SB1010S. I forget f&R but I remember the 8 SB's needed

Minimal, if quick, its literally only a few drops per swap.

Are the shorts for the inner or outer or front or rear?

As some people are complaining about the lack of space for the SB7100 on the clutch master, perhaps an SB7100S will work, it is 5 mm shorter

List of P/N and size meaning:
SB6100 # M6 X 1.0 1.13, (28.80)
SB7100S # M7 X 1.0 1.19, (30.22)
SB7100 # M7 X 1.0 1.38, (35.15)
SB8100 # M8 X 1.0 1.28, (35.54)
SB8125# M8 X 1.25 1.10, (27.99)
SB8125L # M8 X 1.25 1.28, (32.54)
SB8125LL M8 X 1.25 1.50, (38.09)
SB1010S # M10 X 1.0 1.23, (31.35)
SB1010 # M10 X 1.0 1.35, (34.44)
SB10125 # M10 X 1.25 1.35, (32.44)
SB1015 # M10 X 1.5 1.35, (32.44)
