    Sure, but it's a limitation they've made generous enough for you to complete the job, even if you stop once or twice to let the pump cool down.

    They wouldn't want you saying "so, I did some preventive maintenance on my brakes to save myself trouble, and in doing it I burned up my $700 accumulator pump."

    Yeah 100 sec is a long time; I wouldn’t go more than 15~20 seconds, if only to ensure you don’t run the reservoir dry. It moves the fluid pretty fast.
