Bleeding Rear Brakes of 81 Corvette

Shop manual says to bleed the left rear inner and then the left rear outer, then move to righ rear inner then right rear outer. Can not locate the inner bleed screws. Does anyone have a diagram that would help locate these inner bleed screws?

Vette Bleeding
by: Larry

I have a 1980 vette... my rear calipers only have one bleeder each and they are on the outside of the caliper. I found that a power bleeder works the best for vettes, 1L VACUM BRK FLUID BLEEDER BM
always had problems bleeding the rear before I built an air power bleeder with a drilled plate to go over the master cylinder and a air regulator(10psi is perfect). If the rotors are warped at all the brakes will suck in air by the lip seals as well.
I went to the "o" ring style pistons on mine and using the power bleeder the brakes were perfect after 5 mins of bleeding and no helper pressing the pedal. Good Luck :)

After you remove your rear tire it is clearly visible in the same location on the inner part of the caliper as the outer bleed valve is.
