    Does anyone know the correct size bleeder screw for a 1970 FJ40? I can't find the answer anywhere and need to replace mine.

    Thread revival.

    Did this get solved? I need bleeders for my 1970. SOR lists the changeover month for 7/70.

    Does anyone know the correct size for a 7/70 and earlier? Following the above link makes me believe an M10 x 1.0 won't fit.

    Addition: Coolerman's website says that during rebuild, to clean the bleeder threads with a 10mm x 1.25 tap. Is this the data I need to order new bleeders?

    Take one out and measure it with a pitch gauge.
