Brake Bleeder size ?
« on: April 23, 2007, 01:50:57 AM »
Can anyone tell me the size of the brake bleeders for a 69 Camaro ? Looks like 5/16 or 1/4 ? Need to know before buying the tool. Offset ring spanner.
Both front bleeders are stuck firm and the edges rounded.
Clues in removing ?

I have a pair of original bleeders for the front in almost NOS shape on my shelf and it looks like my 3/8 line wrench fits perfect. I just tried it. Good luck!  Sam

 Let them soak in penetrating oil, and use vise grips to remove.  Sometimes tapping the top with a small hammer helps when using the vise grips.
