Default Power bleeder

Looking for a source for an adapter for a power bleeder for my 65 single stage master cylinder. Any ideas from those of you who use one? Thanks.

I had all the adaptors with my Grigg power bleeder, which I tossed out 25 years ago. Simply no need for a power bleeder.

Go on YouTube and see all the bleeding efforts, including gravity bleeding. Dennis

My adapter just arrived today. This one is for the Motive brand power bleeder but it could be adapted to any brand you might have. $38 on eBay with free shipping.
I use a couple of C clamps to hold the adapters in place. This seems to seal them better than the cheap chain and J bolts that come with each kit.
I power bleed all my cars, never have an issue. Good luck

If you are too impatient to gravity bleed, you can make your own for about $5.

Speed bleeders, a little catch bottle and one person with a strong right leg is all you need:
