    Ok guys, the reason it turns into a project is because I have installed Speedster wire
    wheel covers. they do not fit the wheel correctly (disc brake wheels) so I added shim washers and and used locktite as they do not now go into the taper.It was a difficult job getting everything
    to line up so now in order to bleed my stinking brakes I have to do it all over again.
    For now I will just keep double pumping the padal.

    or, one could say, if you need to pull the wheels to get at the bleeders, you need to upgrade your wheels!

    yes, I am one of those guys that just loves seeing a shiny red caliper peeking through a wheel slot...

    Thanks,I figured it was on the front,great place for it you have to pull the wheel.It turns a simple job into a project you have to ask what were they thinking. Jack
    If pulling a wheel is a PROJECT, you need to get a new Impact wrench! [:0]

    .....and as a note of particular interest: You definitely need the check ball in place in order to make the seal. If you send your units out to be re-furbished...keep the balls. I got a pair of rebuilt calipers from a reliable source and received them less check balls. Couldn't get the bleed screw to seal...

    The bleeder hole is drilled and tapped the same as the hole for the brake line. It makes all four cylinders the same part.
    By the way, there's a steel ball under the bleeder that can become stuck and interfer with bleeding.

    1964 GT disc brakes

    I want to bleed my brake system however, I can't seem to locate the
    bleeder screw on my front Bendix calipers.Do you need to remove the wheel to get to the front part of the caliper? does anybody have a
    picture of the location?
