Well after my conundrum of forgetting to put the radiator cap back on, the cooling system vapor locked. Should've known. Oh well.

Any way, while in the process of bleeding it, the top of the bleeder screw broke off. I guess I have to replace the resevior if that can be done. Anyone have a different suggestion? used

pcy is an unknown quantity at this point
Bleeder Screw is very cheap and is available at the dealer (or on-line parts places)
Also, the Coolant Reservoir can be purchased separately.
