Having just replaced some brake components, I noticed that my front bleeder valves are 10mm, and the rear valves are 8mm.

Is anyone aware of different valve sizes on their calipers? (Please post Model/Year with sizes.)

The folks at www.oakos.com who sell Speed Bleeders can tell you. They list the sizes for some Subies on their site, and they can get you an answer about others by e-mail.

Yes, it varies quite a bit. Oakos will sell you the right ones.

For my Toyota, I looked at the size of the threads, and then got them at Napa Auto parts, because they are local (though they did have to order them). But once you know the size of the bleeders, Oakos can get them for you.

BTW, my Toyota has a 5th bleeder on the brake proportioning valve, so check that out on your Honda.

BTW2, I like these things so much that I put one on my clutch bleeder too! It is down on the slave cylinder on my Toyota.
