Hey All,

Went to bleed the brakes last night, front went fine then onto the rear drums.

They seamed a little tight so i coated them with some penetrene and left it for a while, came back to try again and one went SNAP! It is still closed so no fluid is coming out. went to the other one and it is still tight.

I was wondering if anyone knew what size the thread is on the rear drum bleed nipples, so i am able to source out a part? and then i can drill and easyout it.

any help would be greatly appreciated :D

Buy another slave cylinder and use the nipple off that. They are relatively cheap and then you will have a spare body for parts or swap over if one bites the dust.

True, that will be the next option if i am unable to source out a size of the bleed nipple thread. i seen on ebay can pick the Cylinders up for around 25 bucks each.
