Speed Bleeder Clogged?

I just rebuilt and powdercoated my calipers. Went with speed bleeders - 2/caliper = 8 total.

I did the single-handed bleed job and all went well. Except for the 8th and final bleeder. It spit a few shots of fluid out and suddenly quit.

I think it's clogged. Anyone know how to unclog a "check valved speed bleeder?"

Or, any other idea as to how to repair? thanks, shannon

BTW: I ordered these online. Are they typically carried by local auto stores?

Thanks, Shannon
