4kq Brake Bleeding

Sounds like a clogged proportioning valve - located near the right rear
brake line.

Check and see if the right rear pads have almost no wear, and the left rear
have much wear.

Most likely this is the problem.  


  [I'm trying to bleed the brakes and clutch on my '87 4kq.  I'm using a 
  pressure bleeder at 10 psi.  The MC bled fine but I can't get ANY fluid
  of the right rear caliper's bleeder screw.  I haven't tried to bleed any
  the other corners because I want to resolve this first and bleed in the 
  correct order.  I've bled the brakes on my '85 4kq with no problem and I 
  assumed this would be the same.  Any ideas?  TIA!
