Speed bleeders, and what size bleed screws do I have?


Here's one for ya'. On my 67 Grande Parsienne 4 drum system, who knows what size the bleed screws are at the wheel cylinders? I'm assuming they's likely be the same as Impala, but I can't find a listing earlier than 69 for Russel speed bleeders.

69 Impala drum system lists them as being 5/16 -24 x 1" long.
Is 67 the same?

I could not find on the Amazon ad where the price was for 2 bleeders as shown in picture. Carl found them at Summit and their listing said for 2. Out of stock now but said they should ship out early  March

 I bought 2 window regulators from Classic Ind in California when I was doing my resto. About 2 weeks apart, they are different parts left and right. Took me 4-5 hours to do everything on the drivers side. Started on the passenger side, I'm like an hour and a half and its almost done, can't get the one main bolt to start in the hole. Try and try, check the bolt in the old reg, screws right in. Now I have to uninstall everything to get the reg out. Short story....after thinking of returning the part. I found one hole was coarse threaded, one hole was fine threaded. HOW do you screw that up in the manufacturing process....

SO,...Just a follow up on Classic Ind in California. I ordered a headliner and windlace from them 5 weeks ago. I had to give the order person the part number, walk him thru the type of car, (66Bisc sedan)..."no that won't fit, sir".
I'll take it anyway (cheaper than the other company by $40 USD). I need windlace too, enough for the car. "Yes, we have that. Not sure how much is in the package but there should be enough for the car"
Wait 2 weeks, package shows up, correct colour and hopefully it will fit. Windlace too.......3 feet of it!!!! $15 for the package, $20 to send it back.

It gets better...So they ask me to participate in a survey on how my "experience" was. So I send them the survey, 4 out of 10 and explain the problem. Response comes next day,"we have expedited this problem to management, someone will be in touch with you"

It is now 3 weeks....... They did the SAME thing last time. I'm now MISSING 2 toes on my left foot......DUH
