Hhhmmm.....very clever! However, might be too smart for a Stupid thread, such as this. Brilliance could get you banished.

Not to mention it could obsolete Part #'s TR650-HF-HangerGizmo & Dingleballs. Considerable R&D was expended and I had grandoise plans of selling them in bubble-pack pairs at high profit.

We'll have to investigate thread size options of the available bleeder valves. The existing plug is considerably larger, I think. So a reducer bushing may be required, at the very least. You certainly don't want something that could be easily vandalized (so to speak). Something worth more consideration.
