Default Bleeding Brake Lines

Okay, I watched the video on bleeding the break lines on my Ranger, but I'm wondering what size vinyl tubing to get in order to do that? Any suggestions?

one that fits tightly over the bleeder valve. or, if you have two people, you don't even need a piece of tubing. one person pumps and holds the brake, while the other opens the valve, lets the air out, then closes the valve. repeat until the air is out.

No, I have help. I'm just trying to avoid "wearing" brake fluid!

you shouldn't "wear" the brake fluid with two people without a hose, unless you are trying to do it with the wheels on.
