Caliper bleed nipple thread rate

Question

Does anyone know what the thread rate is for Gen 6 brake caliper bleed nipple threads.

 

Need to clean out the threads on a spare set of calipers that I have.

 

Cheers

No, but there is an old trick for cleaning threads.

 

Take a spare bolt (or nipple in your case).  With a hacksaw (or Dremel if you have one), cut a slot to the bottom of the thread. Run this down the thread.  Acts like a plug tap, but without the cutting action.

 

Of course, use with care, as you don't want it breaking off in the caliper.
