Brake bleeding on S-10

A friend replaced the seals on the wheel cylinders of his 86 S-10 and he says the wheel cylinders do not have the traditional grease fitting looking bleeders on them. Instead he says they have a setscrew looking plug without a way to loosen them.

Does anyone know how to bleed the brakes on these. is there a ball and spring inside the set screw looking thing that needs to be depressed?

How do you do it?

<font face="Comic Sans MS">[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] I think what you should do is remove those set screw things and replace them with brake bleeder fittings... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Just carefully unscrew them and slowly remove (just in case anything's in there, which I don't expect there to be)... Then you can see what needs doing...</font>
