Bleed screw for clutch
I was trying to bleed fluid from bleed screw and it was stuck. I didn't realize as I was turning harder the little pipe line twisted a little. I dont think if it's broken just yet. I'm about to make a run to get some Pb blaster. Anyone know how effective that stuff is? If I break the line, how screwed am I??? Helpppp

PB Blaster works pretty good for most nuts and bolts. Depending on the age of the bleed valve/line it could be 50/50 chance of breaking. Let it soak for a while and see. If it breaks well time for new line and if you can't get it bleed now CMC or CSC

The line should be okay. It's the same as brake line and can twist up quite a bit before collapsing inside. If it is damaged, you will have to cut off the damaged part and re-flare the end with a brake line re-flaring tool. It's a pain to do it on the vehicle but it can be done.
As for the bleeder screw, use two wrenches. One to hold the fitting stationary and another to open the bleeder screw.

Alrighty I broke it. It is now leaking :( . Is there any wick fixes? I read something about a compression fitting? How can I attach a new bleeder screw to the compression fitting ?

Or how can I install a new bleeder valve? Is it easy?

Anybody????? How do I go by installing a new bleed valve? There's quite an amount of line to work with so would using a compression ring be smart?
