    My rebuilt calipers were around $12 each. I would just exchange them and let someone else worry about it.

    It is not worth the time and effort to try and remove the bleeders when you can replace the calipers. When I redid my 60, that is the first thing I replaced. The calipers on a 60 are a lot easier to remove than 44's or 10's.
