bleeding brakes on 50 chieftain

Recommended Posts

the bleeders on my 50 pontiac have a female threaded port to accept a bleeder tube (kent-moore #j-747) so that brake fluid wont run down the backing plate and into the drum. i don't know what this thread size is, tho it seems close to a 10-32. anybody know? i want to reverse pressure flush/bleed the system and so i'd like to make up a tube to thread into the wheel cyl bleeders. i've considered replacing the old style bleeders with modern nipple-type, but i am not sure if the seat dimensions are the same. if anyone has had some experience with this, please let me know. thanks!

Great question, but I do not know the answer. I just let my brake fluid make a mess on the shop floor. I am real interested to see an answer so I figured I would move you back up to the top... Lukey
