Note: Proportional controllers do not supply 100% of the voltage when the vehicle is not moving. Your car must be driving for the Hydrastar® to work correctly.
To test the braking system, pull the pin on the breakaway kit to assist you in bleeding the system of hydraulic oil.

Couplemate recommends the use of stainless braided SAE hydraulic hose. Bundy tube or steel tube can become damaged and as a result, restricts the flow of brake fluid.
Braided hose is flexible and poly-coated for long life. Copper tube olive ends with short brass locking nuts.
Equipment like Alko and Trojan caliper requires an olive adaptor nut with copper washer to properly seal hydraulic connections.
Finally, stainless braided hydraulic hose is a good investment to use to connect your Hydrastar to the hydraulic calipers.
