Bleed nipples

Recommended Posts

Im in the middle of overhauling my brakes and after fighting with the bleed nipples to get them out they are in no fit state for reuse.

i went to the local Land rover repair place and asked for some new bleed nipples and the only ones they had are longer in the thread by about 8mm but they say that they are correct as its the only ones that use

Is there two types of bleed nipples or have they been changed to just the longer ones?

the piston sizes from the calliper on the front axle are larger than a standard 90 front pistons (46mm dia by 31mm as opposed to the standard 41mm dia by 34mm) and the rear has got thr right size pistons but the single piece half shaft from either a disco or possible a range rover but they all use the same rear calliper - more of an assumption on the rear axle than anything else)
