Hi. I need to bleed my avid juicy brakes and the youtube how-to vid says it's important to use the avid pad spacer - which i don't have.

Is anyone able to tell me how thick it is so that I can use a washer or penny etc?

    push the pistons home and them fill the gap.

    What Nick says..just fill the gap with rolled up card or something or a 50p is about the same thickness.I've just given my last 2 spacers away or you could have had 1 :roll:
