Thanks, that makes sense. Son was opening boxes and handing me parts as I needed them. I replaced upper and lower control arms, ball joints, spring/struts, axles, stabilizer bushings and end links, rotor’s, calipers and brake hoses. New brake hoses in the rear and unfortunately a new caliper for the right rear. I haven’t had a bleeder screw that tight since I was a kid, back when there were no calipers and the brake cylinders hat bleeder screws so small that they would just break off.
Thanks,I’ll keep that in mind. Couldn’t even break the one off on the caliper, it just wouldn’t turn and after three days of installing new parts I just wanted to be done.
I was referring to the old cylinders on drum brakes that had threads smaller than a grease fitting. Yes the caps were on.
This is a great site for information on one of the better designs from GM. I retired from GM so that’s all I buy.
