When I had this problem, or one very similar, on my 72B I eventually
found a small pin hole in the metal brake line that ran alongside the
rear axle. It was just enough of a hole to let air back in when I was
trying to bleed the line. However, it also leaked a very miniscule
amount of brake fluid, enough to wet a small part around the hole, and
that is how I finally found the problem.

Hi Listers,

I have been reading through the archives and haven't found the problem I
having. I replaced all (3) hoses, (the rear outer casing was completely
the inner casing seemed okay). Anyway, I was able to bleed (3) of the
but on the right rear I can't get anything (air or fluid) to come out.
only other thing I did was replace that wheel's bleeder screw. I even
took the
entire bleeder screw out and tried to bleed the brake and nothing
happened. It
acts like there is something plugged up! When replacing the bleeder
screw if I
got a little greasy dirt that was around the hole accidentally pushed in
bleeder screw hole could that cause this problem? Looking for ideas.

Thanks in Advance
