Yes, you have to re-bleed RR caliper.  I just looked at Bentley: is says "force
it by pumping brake pedal".  I quess the vizibleeder has a check valve and in in
this case it is normal if you have to force pedal to return.  I don't have
experience with such bleeders and don't know how they can screw up things.
I assume that you have brakes working before so, I don't suspect MC. Am I right
or I missed something?
