does anyone know what size the bleeder screws are on front calipers and back cylinders? I need to get new ones when I change out my rubber lines.

New rear wheel cylinders are pretty cheap. Are they due for a refreshing?

no, they are fairly brand new. 1.5 years old, and I haven't put on even 2000 kms. I just want to know the size.

Now I know it's the rubber hoses, but after replacing the calipers, the cylinders, the proportioning valve, then the master cylinder, they are rounded them off a bit from bleeding them so many times.

Do you know what size they are? the front calipers also.

No worries, there's a 2 door sport eagle at the Pick n' Pull here in Calgary, and I'll pull a few off, and then take them in to a auto parts counter, and get a few of them.

I'll post the info when I find out. That will be tomorrow.

Different years/brands are different sizes. Same with the 9" vs 10" brakes. Use a 6 point wrench/socket and they won't round off.

I had the same problem when looking for speed bleeders. Got the correct ones for the front, but haven't found the right size for the rear. They are somewhat expensive for bleeder screws, but are wonderful when bleeding the brakes and allow you to do it much faster by yourself. I look forward to hearing what you come up with.

Anyone know this? I'll need to do this shit and my last brake bleeding I bled through like 2 gallons before I got something that worked. Trying to do it myself was a bitch. Would like to get some speed bleeders.

You don't need a second person. Just open the bleeder let it gravity drain out th. When you stop seeing air bubbles its done. This works damn good. Also if nothing is coming out there is abrestriction somewhere.

How do you see the bubbles?

And opening it up just lets it flow out? Usually you need to pump the brakes to push the shit out.
