Has anyone installed speed bleeders, or replaced the stock bleeders on their CPP brake kit? I called CPP and asked the application of their zero-offset brake cylinder and was told "I'm pretty sure they're for a 79-82 S-10". Result: one ruined Russell speed bleeder. The threads are correct, but the tip which seats in the cylinder is barely too large (in diameter) on the speed bleeder. When I tightened it, and felt resistance, I assumed it was the thread sealer, but when I backed it out, the bleed hole had been crushed almost closed. Bottom line is, I wonder if it's possible to put speed bleeders in these brake cylinders. If anyone has done it, let me know.

Are the threads on your bleeder screws spaced out compared to the speed bleeders? I saw some on summit that were more spaced out but havent tried them.
