Gulf stream rear brakes

I haven't run my RV in a couple years. Recently while moving it I blew a rear brake line. I replaced the lines but while trying to bleed the system I broke off a bleeder. I thought I would remove the caliper to get at the broken bleeder. I can't find how to remove the caliper. I have worked on pickup disc brakes so brakes are not something new to me. It has GM running gears. But according to the internet 87 GMs don't have rear disc brakes. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Lena

Look for parts on a 1987 Workhorse chassis. Perhaps a 'P' series. Most every caliper I've seen has two bolts from the backside that holds it in place. Since a bleeder is hollow to start with, you might be able to tap in an 'ez out' and back out the broken stub.

It will be a GM P32 chassis and if you can find the GVWR, almost any decent medium duty truck shop should be able to help you source parts.

Workhorse didn't exist prior to 1999, so asking for their parts likely will only confuse the issue.

OBTW, WELCOME to iRV2.com, where we also have a "VINTAGE" forum and perhaps somebody over there can be helpful.

There also is a P-30 chassis on Yahoo groups that has a lot of information with almost 1400 members.
