None of these posts addresses how to bleed brakes with two separate master brake cylinders, one for the front brakes, the other for the rear brakes, obviously activated by the single brake pedal. If bleeding one, how is the pressure in the other closed system compensated?

 Vintageant,

That will be because most Caterhams only have one brake master cylinder!

I use a pressure bleeder, bleeding each circuit individually.

A 'gentle' tap of the caliper with a plastic headed hammer while bleeding will dislodge the reluctant air bubble(s).

Well it worked for me!

How would you bleed a single system... pedal and shout, positive pressure, negative pressure?

Sounds right to me.
