I am not sure on that one. The safest thing to do is bench bleed it. Are you still having problems after bleeding the system? If anything try bleeding at the line going into the wheel cylinder like I do. Only a few more hours till I do mine.

Are you supposed to put anything on the threads of a new bleeder valve? Anti-seize or teflon tape or anything like that?

Nothing is required on the threads. I use to put a little Never- Seize on them so they'd be easier to loosen next time.

It went in dry. I can't get the broken bleeder out of the other front caliper, so I put some JB weld on it and hammered a small flathead screwdriver into it. I'll give it a try in the morning.
