They look simple Although I don't understand why a vacuum system works any better than a pressure system as long as the fluid travels fast enough to carry any air with it and you don't allow any back in.

The difference is that pushing liquid through spaces doesn't necessarily push all bubbles of trapped air too but sucking liquid will also suck the air from those spaces.

I've only ever used pressure systems, does a vacuum system make it harder to find leaks? A pressure system dribbles out but is a vacuum system more likely to suck air in than allow fluid to leak out?

Probably, but you find the leaks soon enough when you pump the brakes.

True, but by then you've disconnected all the kit and put everything back together :unsure:
