Bleed nipples - rear calipers

Recommended Posts

Oddly, since rebuilding the calipers my nipples are bleeding. Girlings.

Can I get a pair locally?

Must be leaking past the junction between nipple and caliper, where it tightens down to seal..better take them aout and check there's no foreign bodies in the interface! Bleed nipples are pretty standard things, should be able to source them locally I would have thought, or try Think Automotive in Isleworth...they're on the web.

Steve at SJ's had some that were just right with a larger 10mm A/F hex which is less prone to rounding than the 8mm one shown on his price list at 75p

Thanks John,

Just ordered some from him as the local motorfactors were useless...as expected!
