How on earth are you supposed to bleed the front brakes on a 66"? The bleeder screw comes out and faces straight into the spindle with no room to attach a hose or get a wrench on it. ::

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

I think it's called a box wrench. Same as open wrench but without the open part. I used a 1/4 inch that come up at an angle of 45 degrees for about 1/2 inch. I hope this makes sense ?! It's tight but usable.

Actually a box end wrench totally encloses the hexagonal nut. I know what you are talking about and I think it is a brake line wrench designed to grab 4 or 5 of the six points rather than 2 flats of an open end wrench.
My biggest quandry is getting a tube on the bleeder screw that will stay on as you turn the screw.

Use small zip ties to hold the tube on the bleeder. It worked for me.
