That IS a good theory- but the '80 Malibu this MC was for is a disc/drum set up.

It seems odd, though, that previously the bench bleed procedure was different and now so seemingly easy in comparison, w/o anything changing AFA how the MC is built or functions- at least AFA I know.

I would have thought that WE would've known about this before the rebuilders figured it out!
