1975 corvette, cannot bleed rear brakes

by Greg
(Fl. USA)

I found 3 out of four calipers leaking brake fluid and then replaced all four. Prior to replacing the calipers, I noticed the brake light stayed on, thinking the leaky calipers were the problem. Looking at the repair manual, I see what they call a "brake line distributer and switch" which I was told if not reset would not allow the back brakes to bleed. It doesn't, however, state how to reset the switc. Is there simple way to do this?

If it's not badly gunked up fill and close the system and stomp hard on the brake pedal.
