I just installed a new bleeder on my rear Caliper (Caddy style) and there is a small amount of fluid sepage that is coming from the bleeder hole. It is very tight, but still a little fluid coming out. Any ideas?

Rebuilt caliper? It may have a crappy, half-stripped out bleeder hole or a bad seat in the casting.:(
If it's leaking now, it ain't gonna get any better.

Yikes, not exactly what I wanted to hear. It is a rebuilt caliper. Been on my shelf too long to return. Is there a fix or "jimmy" fix for something like that (temporarily) - Like some teflon tape or something? I have seen the drill and tap kits in the help section - but I may go with a replacement before I go that route. Thanks

Dan best to leave the Teflon tape in the plumbing bucket. If they make an oversize bleeder I don't see a problem with drilling and tapping it. That is a permanent type fix in a critical area.....Good Luck
