    Looks good,

    tapping the vice grips with a hammer works well for this, I wish you luck. I broke a bleeder before not fun.
    If you do have to replace the caliper at least you got the core.

    I replaced the calipers with some off of a 84 blazer. They fit like a glove!!! Took it out today and love it!

    Fantastic, I'm glad it's working.

    What parts did you end up putting into the swap?

    .1/2 inch NPT pipe plugs from local auto parts store.
    .84 blazer calipers and backing plate.
    .brake pads, bolts, brake lines, rotors(78 cj) and seals from Napa.
    .Had the hub machined 1/8
    .willows universal adjustable proportioning valve.

    I had huge discounts for a lot of the parts and I still ended up spending about $450. Without the discounts I'm sure I would have spent a little more than $600 but well worth it. I've herd of people spending about $250 and I have no idea how they do it...

    Prairie city in Folsom area. I want to go up to the Sierra here in a few weeks to take it through some nice trails. There is a few things that I need to work on but over all it did great.
