OOOOO!  Mike called Ed Kaler a WAG!

If the bleed screw is that bad, think of what the pistons look like.  It 
sounds like its time to buy some rebuilts.

What doesn't budge?  If you can't get the mounting bolts off there may be 
locking tabs.  Make sure they are bent out of the way.  If the bolts are out, 
the caliper should move easily off.  If not, you must have a car that was 
sitting in water for a long time.

Use some WD40 and a stiff brush to clean off all the crud so you can see what 
you are doing.  Or use a pressure washer if you have one.  I had trouble 
finding the locking tabs on my Midget until I cleaned it all up.
