Sorry , but I really hate these things

71 Lemans. New wheel cylinders and shoes out back and of course it is making bleeding impossible. Went through this many years ago and cursed them then too.

I have tried all the tricks online: open all four bleeders and stomp on it, take out the rear feed and using a small nail, slide it back and next would be to pull out the wire, unscrew the fitting and try correcting. Can not get any wrench to fit the fitting. This is the worst design.

How do I correct? Years ago the above worked. Do I need to replace?
If so, what stops the new o e from blocking g the rear since I will be introducing a bunch of air.

Thank you.

There's a little tool you screw in where the warning light switch goes and holds it centered:

Problem is how to remove the switch assembly. It is frozen.
I will get a new block and the tool. Thanks for your help.

I use a 1/4 inch drive ratchet and socket to open and close the bleeder valve, Does your car have the hold off valve? If it does you need to make a wooden wedge inserted between the pin on the fire wall side of the valve and the booster while bleeding.Mine was defective and needed to be replaced. Give inline tube a call they are very knowledgeable and happy to give advice. They were instrumental in solving several problems caused by the previous owner of my car.
