pic looks like a LM rear--the "hex" head would be 3/8" for that,5/16" for a front (which is shorter,like a grease fitting)

Resurrecting this oldie but goodie. Russell Speed Bleeder do not show part number for Corvair. Is the Corvette bleeder (below) the correct size for Early rear cylinder as shown in original post?
