    I agree.
    Try soaking the bleeder valve with WD-40 or equivalent for a day or so.
    Then use a socket on it to loosen.
    If it breaks off you will have to get new wheel cylinders 20 something dollars each.

    My advice would be to NOT drive the truck until the brakes were operating as they were intended. Worst case scenario get a small pipe wrench to remove the bleeders and then buy replacements. Parts for Dana axles are common and should be readily available at the local parts store. At the risk of infringing on some copywrite laws, the life you save may be your own. You've gone through the expense and trouble to upgrade your braking system but it'll be for nothing if you don't finish the job.

    brake bleeding

    Got a quick question. I replaced my rear soft brake line with an extended brake line from skyjacker. Had huge problem when I got to bleeding my brakes! I have a 75 scout2 and it seems no one has ever bleed the brakes. Couldn't get the bleeder valves to open. Is it okay to drive like this?? My friends say my brakes will not fail but will be spongy. Any info will help, im all new at this, thanks
