Re: cracked rear caliper!?
Normally if you over-tighten a bleed screw it doesn't leak, as it's in the "closed" position.. so I don't know why it should be leaking unless the thread is stipped too..?
If you can remove the old screw, just put a new one in there and bleed the caliper.
If the head shears off, you should easily be able to extract the remains, as it has a hole through it already for a stud extractor to get hold of it.
Of course, if the thread is stripped you'll need a repair or a second-hand caliper (which may actually be cheaper).
The GTVs seem to have had two types of rear calipers (iron and alloy) which were fitted to both 2.0 and 3.0 ltr cars... so you need the right material rather more the right model.
No bullets for Chaingun..
