Bleeder Screws

#1
I've been fighting with bleeder screws leaking past the seat and dripping. Come to find out, it doesn't take very much debris to cause them to leak. I didn't realize that when I got mine powder coated, and I think there was still some blast media on the seats even though they looked fairly clean.

I think it would be a good general practice anyways before you assemble the calipers to take some steel wool, cram it down there with a screw driver, and twist it until there is no doubt in your mind that it's clean. Then blow it out and use some brake cleaner. There is nothing more frustrating than tightening a bleeder screw down and seeing it seep out the top.

All four of ours leaked. We didn't even powder coat them or anything. I had to tighten the shit out of them to the point that I thought I was going to twist them off. The leaking ruined the clear coat of the powder coat on the frame where it dripped.

Thanks for the tip before i powder coat mine that would be a bummer.
