As soon as I get them off and look at them I'll post some pics and what ever info I can gleam from them.
Have to borrow/buy a 36mm socket first to get that axel nut off.

It didn't take much effort at all to twist that nipple off. I didn't feel
that I was exerting that much torque on it at the time.
I was a Helicopter Maintenance Officer and Test Pilot in the Army. So I do
believe in using the right torque. My A** was on the line.
What I would do now is take them off and send them to me. I will heat them up
and try to anneal the ez-outs. Once they are softer, I would try to drill them
out with a left hand drill. That usually takes them right out when there's no
ez-out in there, but I don't know how successful I'll be in this case.
The rear bleed valves are M6 x 1 thread and I have replacements, but I agree
that they should have been a little bigger.
I also have rebuilt 7/8 type 3 wheel cylinders as well as a few other odd
sizes, but it would still be best if I could see your old ones to make sure you
got the right replacements.
