Re: bleeding rear drums

First of to the best of my Knowledge whoever told you the rear drums don't have bleeder screws In My Opinion is screwed in the head themselves .
I have been working on vehicals for years and I have yet to run into a Brake sysem ( or any Hydrolic system on a vehical ) that doesn't have a bleeder screw somewhere

With that been said the bleeders are located either under or over the Brake line in the rear just have a freind pump the brakes hold the pedel down as you open the bleeder screw when your freinds foot hits the floor close the bleeder and do the process again until you get a solid streem on fluid of course make sure you keep the brake fluid up in the master cylinder every time
