Bleeding fixed my grabbing. Using a vacuum bleeder is easy and quick to suck clean fluid through the lines.

You can make a vacuum bleeder using a large cooking injector syringe. Take off the needle and attach a 6"-8" long tube to the syringe and the brake bleeding nipple. Open the nipple and pull out on the syringe plunger - it will suck out the bad fluid - when the syringe is about 1/2 full, lock the nipple, pull off the tube and empty the syringe with the dirty fluid. Repeat as needed to suck out the bad. Don't forget keep the reservoir topped off with clean fluid.
