Anyone know the exact size of the Studebaker Avanti rear drum bleeder screw(s)?

I know that the front caliper bleeder size is 3/8 X 24.

Thanks in advance for the help!

The Avanti rear wheel cylinder bleed screw is 1/4X28 thread size. Hope this helps.:)

Which ISN'T much meat by the time they've been drilled hollow for the fluid to exit! That's why they twist off do damned easy once they get a bit rusted.:(

As has been mentioned before, if you are replacing the bleeder, apply a coat of anti-sieze compound to the threads before installing. You will thank you the next time.
