Are you using a good set of vise grips? Got any PB Blaster?

PB-Blaster is some real good penetrating spray. It work pretty fast also.

Put a drill bit in bleeder hole. Use the largest drill bit that will fit. You can even drill out lighttly. Soak bleeder with penetrate and use a good pair of vice grips. The drill bit will keep bleeder from distorting from vice grips. Good luck.

After you spray the penetrating lube, give the caliper a few taps in the bellder area with a small hammer. It seems to help the oil penetrate.

Last resort you can try heating the valve but I dont recommend it.
