It is possible they have been broken off previously. Otherwise they are very obvious to find, right near the top of the caliper. When they break off, they break flush and after a bit of dirt, become invisible.

check on the top center of the backing plate on each side - use a metal brush to clen away any rust corrosion - they are probably very rusty. if they are broken i would suggest removing the rear drums and replacing the wheel cylinders.

thanks much had dirt around bleeders so cleaned them and all is well thanks again
