Post Bleeding Wheel cylinder on a 91 corolla

I am trying to bleed the wheel cylinder on my 91 toyota corolla. But the right rear wheel cylinder won't bleed (Fluid is not coming out from the wheel cylinder). Also, I have pumped the brakes with both the engine on an off and the fluid does not come out.

I have the following questions:

1. Where is wheel cylinder bleed valve located. I have not seen any drawing that shows the wheel cylinder bleed valve. However, going by intution, I saw a outlet (on the back side of the back plate) with a cap on it. This outlet is on the wheel cylinder. So I am assuming that this is the wheel cylinder bleed valve. Is this correct?

2. I did a wheel cylinder rebuild by putting the new piston and boots. In the process, I have not put the old spring that was there in the wheel cylinder back in (this is per the instructions in the wheel cylinder repair kit that says that I should not be using old spring). Is it possible, that the piston is blocking the bleed valve? How do I over come this?

This is my first time working with the brakes, so let me know if you need further information to answer this.

let me start by saying, did you hone the cyl before putting in the pistons and cups. yes you do need the spring in there. why would you bother trying to rebuild a 15 to 20 dollar part. the bleeder screw is on the back of the cyl. make sure the master cyl is full. if you let the cyl run dry,you will have to bleed both rear brakes. if your car has diagonal brakes, you will have to bleed RH rear and LH front. good luck!
